OH Turnpike ramps in Lordstown to close

BEREA, Ohio (WKBN) – Beginning April 27, the eastbound entrance ramp to the Ohio Turnpike at Exit 216 (Lordstown -East) will be closed for approximately 45 days, according to a press release from the Ohio Turnpike Commission.

Beginning about June 5, the westbound exit ramp from the Ohio Turnpike at Exit 216 will be closed until about Oct. 30.

The Ohio Turnpike has posted detour routes on its website.

The closures are part of the Ohio Turnpike’s base pavement replacement project between milepost 216.10 and 221.26 in Trumbull and Mahoning Counties.

Eastbound and westbound Ohio Turnpike customers traveling in this area will encounter a lane closure on the Turnpike starting on April 21. One lane will be closed in each direction.

On or about June 1, a bi-directional traffic pattern will be in use, while crews remove and replace the original base pavement in the eastbound direction.
