Construction on U.S. Route 224 at its intersections with Interstate 680 by the Ohio Department of Transportation advanced with the opening of a T-intersection, with a traffic light at 680 southbound exits to 224 eastbound and westbound.
“That was one of the main things we were trying to do with this project, was try to make that intersection safer” with the addition of the T-intersection and traffic light, said Brent Kovacs, ODOT District 4 spokesman.
Prior to the installation of the traffic light at the intersection, there were two separate exits for 224 eastbound and westbound, and motorists had to merge onto 224. Motorists now turn left onto 224 eastbound and right onto 224 westbound when they reach the light.
