Local News Stories

We’re going to see some more work taking place on Interstate 70 this week that will lead to some night closures.

Starting Monday at 11pm I-70 Westbound will close between US 40 and SR 93 for pavement repairs. It will remain closed until 4AM. The work will take place Monday-Friday. During the closure traffic will be detoured onto US 40. The eastbound closure will follow on Friday and Saturday.

Beginning this week there will also be overnight lane closures on I-70 from the three lane portion in eastern Licking County to Mount Perry Road exit in Western Muskingum County for paving operations.

State Route 16 should reopen by the end of the day Monday. It will then be restricted to one lane with a temporary signal to complete work.

All of these projects are weather dependent and subject to change.
