Liberty Way ramp to I-75 to be closed at night this week

LIBERTY TWP. — There are nightly ramp closures at the Liberty Way and Interstate 75 interchange scheduled for this week as work continues on the massive reconfiguration project.

The southbound I-75 ramp to Liberty Way will close from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday and the Liberty Way ramp to northbound I-75 will close during the same hours from Wednesday through Saturday. The closures are weather permitting.

The $32 million Liberty Way fix is the largest project on county Engineer Greg Wilkens’ to-do list this year. The project also includes two new roundabouts in the Veterans Boulevard extension. Construction started last year and $16 million worth of work will be completed this year.

There have been some delays in the project but it is still slated for completion in November.

Drivers are encouraged to plan their nighttime routes accordingly. Check the BCEO website, as well as Facebook and Twitter @bceonews, for possible date and status changes concerning this and other closures/advisories.
