If you've been driving the Kenmore Leg -- and banging your head against the steering wheel as the Ohio Department of Transportation closes major portions of I-277 for resurfacing work -- it might help to see just what you've been missing.
ODOT has a video news release posted to it's YouTube account detailing the roadway removal, structural work including drilling existing concrete to place new rebar elements, and new layers of asphalt as part of it's work on the westbound lanes of the highway. The video makes a point of noting worker safety is a key issue since those rebuilding the highway don't have to worry about speeding cars just a construction cone away.
ODOT expects the construction work to be completed by mid-July, just in time to give motorists time to get re-aquainted with the highway ahead of the Hall of Fame and World Golf Championship weekends.
