Medina County road maintenance planned for I-76, township roads

The following are the Ohio Department of Transportation maintenance projects in Medina County:

Wadsworth

Interstate 76, from state Route 57 to the Summit County line, has single lanes 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.

Brunswick Hills Township

Sleepy Hollow Road, at the bridge over Interstate 71, is closed for a bridge rehabilitation project. Motorists are encouraged to use U.S. Route 42, state Route 303 and County Road 17 around the closure. The road is expected to be closed through October.

Harrisville Township

Congress Road, between Sanford and Moss roads, will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday from about 7 a.m. to
5 p.m., according to the Medina County Engineer’s Office. The closing is to test drillings needed for bridge maintenance

Hinckley Township

State Route 3, one-half-mile north of state Route 606 is closed as part of a slide repair and for culvert replacement. The suggested detour for motorists is state Route 606 and state Route 303. The road is expected to reopen at the end of August. Also in Hinckley Township, state Route 303, between West 130th Street and the Summit County line, is reduced to one lane of traffic as part of a resurfacing project. One lane of two-way traffic will be maintained with flaggers at all times. The project is expected to be complete in mid-August.

Medina Township

Remsen Road, at the bridge over Interstate 71, is closed for a bridge rehabilitation project. Motorists are encouraged to use Weymouth, Ledge and Ridge roads as alternates around the closure. The road is expected to be closed through mid-September.

Spencer Township

State Route 162, between the Lorain County line and the village of Spencer, has intermittent lane closures for pavement repair work. One lane of two-way traffic will be maintained at all times with flaggers. The project is expected to be complete in July.
