New projects underway by the Ohio Department of Transportation in Mahoning County:
State Route 46, Canfield Township: Route 46 between Western Reserve and Leffing-well roads is closed through mid-November for a bridge replacement. The detour is state Route 11 to U.S. Route 224 to Route 46/U.S. Route 62. This work is the beginning of a $720,000 project to replace a culvert on Route 46 between Lesher Road and state Route 165, and includes the bridge replacement. The project will be complete by late November.
U.S. Route 62 and U.S. Route 224, Canfield: The following routes in the city of Canfield have lane restrictions for resurfacing — Route 224 from Route 62 to Talsman Drive and Route 62 from Callahan Road to Scott Street. This work is part of a $1 million project to resurface Route 224 between Route 62 and Talsman Drive and Route 62 in the city. The project will be complete by late October.
U.S. Route 224, Berlin Township: Beginning Monday, Route 224 between the Portage County line and state Route 534 will have various daily lane restrictions for resurfacing. This work is the beginning of a $3 million project to resurface Route 224 and Route 534 in Mahoning, Portage and Trumbull counties. The project will be complete by September 2014.
Interstate 680 and Route 224, village of Poland and Boardman: The ramp from Route 224 westbound to I-680 northbound is open, as is the ramp from Route 224 eastbound to I-680 northbound.

In addition, Route 224 between I-680 and Tiffany Boulevard is reduced to one lane in each direction for roadway widening and interchange modifications. Motorists should expect delays. This work is part of a $5.4 million project to widen the Route 224 bridge over I-680 and improve the I-680/Route 224 interchange. The project will be complete by late October 2014.
