New traffic pattern on I-670 and I-270 at U.S. 62 to last six months

Local News

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — According to the Ohio Department of Transportation, starting Monday, construction work on the I-670 SmartLane Project will cause the ramp from I-670 east to I-270 north and US 62 east to be reduced to two lanes on the bridge for six months.  

I-270 north traffic can use either lane, but drivers headed to US 62 east MUST be in the right lane. Instead of two lanes each for I-270 north and US 62 east, the exit to US 62 east will be one lane only beginning Monday. 

To shift traffic into this new pattern, lanes and ramps will be closed Monday night: 

  • 7 PM: I-670 EB will be reduced to two lanes between Cassady Ave. and I-270 and the ramp from I-670 EB to I-270 NB will be reduced to one lane. 
  • 8 PM: The ramp from US 62 WB to I-270 NB will close. Detour: US 62 WB to I-270 SB to Hamilton Rd. to I-270 NB. 
  • 10 PM: The ramp from International Gateway/Stelzer Rd. to I-670 EB will close. Detour: International Gateway/Stelzer Rd. to I-670 WB to 5th Ave. to I-670 EB. 
  • 11 PM: I-670 EB will be reduced to one lane between Cassady Ave. and I-270. 
  • 12 AM: The ramps from I-670 EB to I-270 NB and US 62 EB will close. Detour: I-670 EB to I-270 SB to Hamilton Rd. to I-270 NB (to US 62 EB).  
  • 5 AM TUESDAY: All lanes and ramps open.
