I-480/Route 82 ramp to close for sound wall project


TWINSBURG — The Interstate 480 westbound entrance ramp from Route 82 closed starting Monday as part of a $3.4-million sound wall installation project, the Ohio Department of Transportation’s District 4 office in Akron has announced.

The closure is expected to last through June 29. The detour will be I-480 eastbound to Route 91 and then I-480 westbound.

The project is to construct sound walls on the highway’s west side from Route 82 west to Chamberlain Road. Periodic lane restrictions should be expected. Completion is scheduled for late August, ODOT says.
