Roadblocks on turnpike
Rolling roadblocks will cause Ohio Turnpike delays from about 6:45 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. Monday as workers demolish a portion of the old eastbound Cuyahoga River Bridge, the turnpike commission said.
Westbound traffic will slow to about 30 miles per hour beginning at milepost 190 in Portage County. Eastbound traffic will slow beginning at milepost 162 in Cuyahoga County. During the 30-minute roadblock, traffic will not be permitted to enter the turnpike at interchanges 173 (Exit 11), 180 (Exit 12) and 187 (Exit 13) or at the Towpath Service Plaza.
