ODOT crews are preparing to begin the I-77 bridge deck replacement project.
The project will replace the bridge deck and improve drainage between I-480 and Grant Avenue.
Weather permitting, on Friday, March 14 at 7 p.m., crews will close all lanes of I-77 north and south between I-480 and SR 21 Avenue until 6 a.m. Monday, March 17 in order to implement the phase one traffic configuration.
Drivers will be detoured to SR 176 and I-490.
During the weekend closure, ODOT will also close the I-77 southbound ramp to I-480 west and the I-480 eastbound ramp to I-77 north. The ramps will be closed until early November.
During construction, three lanes in each direction on I-77 will be maintained.
