Repairs To Close I-71 Lanes Near Cleveland

CLEVELAND (AP) - Two lanes of Interstate 71 south of downtown will be closed in each direction for the next four months.

The Ohio Department of Transportation will close a 1.5-mile stretch while construction crews resurface the highway and ramps on four-lane I-71.

Crews also will replace an 800-foot culvert as part of the $13.5 million project.

If weather permits work to start, the lanes will close this week.

Alternative routes include Interstate 90 or the Jennings Freeway to Interstate 480.
