  • Beginning Wednesday, July 2, there will be no access to the Midway Mall entrance at 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 – A work zone remains in place at the northeast quadrant of the intersection. One lane of traffic will be maintained at all times through the intersection.

State Route 57 – Traffic on SR 57, between the Midway Mall Boulevard and the Ohio Turnpike, will be shifted temporarily on to the shoulders as the contractor installs a work zone.

traffic will be divided with a concrete barrier wall and two lanes of traffic will remain in place both north and southbound.
