MACEDONIA — North Bedford Road under Interstate 480 will be closed over this coming weekend while a highway overpass is demolished, the Ohio Department of Transportation has announced.
The closure will begin at 7 p.m. Friday, with the road expected to reopen on Monday at 5 a.m. The detour around the closure will be Ledge Road, Route 8 and Alexander Road to Macedonia Road, North Bedford’s name in Cuyahoga County.
Amanda McFarland, spokeswoman for ODOT’s District 12 office in Garfield Heights, said the Interstate 480 overpass to Interstate 271 northbound is being demolished with traffic diverted to two new overpasses. The eastbound overpass from Interstate 271 southbound is remaining, she said.
McFarland said the bridge replacement is due to a realignment in the highway caused by the widening of Interstate 271 from Oakwood to Bedford.
