BEREA, OH (WOIO) - A 19 Action News Travel Alert in Berea.

According to ODOT, Depot Street between Columbus and Front Streets is expected to reopen on Friday. At that time, the new intersection will reopen to east/west traffic. State Route 237 (Front Street) is closed between Second Avenue and a point between the CSX and Norfolk Southern railroad tracks.

Motorists are detoured via Bagley Road and N. Rocky River Drive. (Heavy truck traffic is detoured via Engle Road.) Access to businesses north of the Norfolk Southern Railroad tracks remains from N. Rocky River Drive only. Emerson Avenue is closed through the duration of the project between Front Street and N. Rocky River Drive. Front Street will remain closed until approximately late October 2010 as crews work to construct a grade separation to carry Front Street traffic over the CSX and Norfolk Southern railroad tracks and an access road.

A tentative completion date has been slated for October 28th, 2010.
