BEREA, Ohio (WYTV) – The eastbound entrance ramp to the Ohio Turnpike at Interchange 216 (Lordstown – East) will close Wednesday, April 27 and will remain closed until November 2016.

In addition, according to a media alert sent from Brian Newbacher, east and westbound Ohio Turnpike drivers will encounter a traffic pattern with an eastbound contraflow lane reversal and reduced speed limits from April 27 through mid-November.

Crews will remove and replace the original pavement in the eastbound right and center lanes between mileposts 216.9 to 221.2 in Mahoning County.

Eastbound drivers intending to remain on the Ohio Turnpike must use the left lane only. Eastbound drivers wishing to exit to I-80-Niles/Youngstown (Exit 218) must use the right lane; eastbound traffic in the right lane will be required to exit.
