The Ohio Department of Transportation temporarily backed away Wednesday from closing three main ramps of the central interchange of interstate highways and Route 8 in Akron.
The problem was signs -- or, rather, the lack of them. The multi-year project, for which the ramp work is an early step, will eventually cost a half a billion dollars and affect much of Summit County.
But, ODOT found that contractors didn’t have all of the required warning and detour signs in place in time for the shutdown last night.
Justin Chesnic is a spokesman for the department.
