SR 57 Corridor Update – 7/7/14

SR 57 Corridor Project

Update on work for the week of July 7

ELYRIA (Thursday, July 3, 2014) – The Ohio Department of Transportation District 3 provides the following update on the State Route 57 corridor improvement project in the City of Elyria:

State Route 57:  Traffic has been shifted on to the outside shoulders, and two lanes remain in each direction between the Midway Mall Boulevard and the Ohio Turnpike. The contractor will work within the median during this phase of reconstruction, and traffic will remain in this pattern through the Fall.

Midway Mall Boulevard/Tillotson Street: The work zone is now in place on the southern half of the intersection. The contractor is removing the existing pavement, relocating fire hydrants, and placing aggregate base.

  • There is no longer access to the Midway Mall from Tillotson Street. Midway Mall customers will have access from the entrance east of Tillotson Street or through Travelers Lane, west of Red Lobster. This will remain in place through late August.

Leona Street/Midway Mall Boulevard: The work zone will switch on Monday, July 7 to the northwest quadrant of the intersection for reconstruction work. One lane of traffic will be maintained at all times through the intersection.

Griswold Road: Beginning Friday, July 11, the contractor will begin reconstruction of the southern half of Griswold Road,
both east and west of SR 57. One lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction at all times.

Residents, business owners, and motorists are encouraged to contact ODOT District 3’s Public Information Office with any questions or concerns about this work at
