Expect lane restrictions on 161 near Beech for next two days


The Ohio Department of Transportation is scheduled to do some crack-sealing work on state Route 161, near Beech Road, on Nov. 5 and 6.

Traffic will be restricted between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. both days.

Lane closures will be in the eastbound lanes of Route 161, from Beech Road to state Route 310, on Nov. 5. Closures on Nov. 6 will be in the westbound lanes of Route 161, from one mile east of Route 310 to Beech Road.

One lane of traffic will remain open both days, according to ODOT officials.

The project is dependent on the weather, and motorists are advised to plan for delays.
