ODOT to add new lanes to ease congestion between Macedonia & Bedford

Posted: Updated:

If funding is ok' d, drivers on Interstate 271 could get some much needed relief.

The Ohio Department of Transportation plans to add new lanes to the highway between Macedonia and Bedford.

The plan would add three lanes in each direction between Route 8 and Interstate 480 and as many as five lanes between I-480 and Miles Road.

The project is estimated to cost $193 million. If ODOT gets funding construction could start as early as next summer.

An information session on the project will be held Tuesday from 5 to 7 p.m. at Macedonia City Hall.
