Like dandelions in spring, orange barrels are sprouting up all over Medina County roadways.
In Wadsworth, there will be intermittent closures through the week of entrance and exit ramps along Interstate 76 for repaving, the Ohio Department of Transportation has announced.
Also on I-76, three will be single lanes from state Route 57 to the Summit County line for final paving work and cable rail installation within the median.
Motorists are advised to use caution in this area and watch for slower-moving traffic as it merges in to the open lane. This project will be complete in July.
