- Motorists traveling on I-271 northbound from just south of Broadview Rd. to just south of SR 303 should be aware of a bi-directional traffic pattern. Although two lanes of traffic are maintained in each direction on I-271 northbound traffic is split, with one lane of northbound traffic crossed over onto I-271 southbound, while the second lane remains on I-271 northbound. The right lane that remains on I-271 northbound is considered an exit only lane for Brecksville Rd. and I-77 northbound. Motorists who wish to stay on I-271 northbound need to remain in the left lane which crosses over onto I-271 southbound.
- I-77 northbound and southbound under I-271 has various nightly lane restrictions between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m.
This work is part of a $46.4 million project to reconstruct the pavement along I-271 from Broadview Rd. to the Ohio Turnpike. Then entire project is scheduled to be completed by late July 2017.
