06.26.2014:  ODOT has informed us that the northbound on and off ramps to State 303 from I-271 will be CLOSED beginning Monday, July 7, 2014 for approximately 30 days.  Detour signs will be posted. 

PROJECT BRECKSVILLE ROAD:  

The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) Brecksville Road construction project will BEGIN ON MONDAY, JUNE 16, 2014 UNTIL AUGUST 31, 2014.

The section of road north of the turnpike bridge will be milled down and several areas will be complete full depth repairs.  This requires complete removal of the asphalt road and base materials.  The road will then be built back up to road profile from the base to the top.  Once the full depth repairs are completed there will be a top coat of asphalt placed on the entire area. 

Residents and motorists should note that the traffic in both directions will be maintained at all times.  There will be lane shifting and single lanes will occur while construction takes place.  We recognize that this will add traffic flow congestion throughout the community this summer but we are pleased that ODOT is completing the much needed road repairs.   

PLEASE ADD ADDITIONAL TIME TO YOUR DAILY COMMUTE AND SLOW DOWN AND BE AWARE OF THE ROAD WORKERS.

PROJECT INTERSTATE 271 (TWO LOCATIONS): 

Interstate 271 in the Village of Richfield and Richfield Township will be restricted to one lane in each direction for bridge work beginning Monday, March 10 until futher notice.  The anticipated work completion date is July, 2017.  This work is part of a $46.4 million project to reconstruct the pavement along I-271 from Broadview Road to the Ohio Turnpike. 

PLEASE drive with care through this section:  slow down and be aware of the workers and slower traffic. 

BEGINNING MAY 5, 2014 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Interstate 271 in Village of Richfield and Richfield Township:  At approximately 6 p.m. Motorists traveling northboud between I-77 and the Ohio Turnpike should be aware of a bi-directional traffic pattern.  Although two lanes of traffic are maintained in each direction on I-271, northbound traffic is split, with one lane of northbound. 

UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE the following traffic restrictions are in place: 

  • The Brecksvill Road bridge over I-271 is reduced to one lane of traffic maintained by a traffic signal through early June for bridge rehabilitation.
  • SR-303 over I-271 is restricted to one lane in each direction for bridge work through early December.
