Wayne County: Construction update

For the week of September 26, 2022

WAYNE COUNTY (Friday, September 23, 2022) – The following construction projects are anticipated to affect highways in Wayne County next week. All outlined work is weather permitting.

State Route 83 Major Rehab Project – SR 83, from just south of U.S. 30 to Milltown Road, will have daily lane closures for the removal and replacement of all existing full-depth pavement, shoulder widening, ramp improvements, and the roadway curvature on SR 83 northbound, south of SR 3 interchange, will be modified to improve sight distance.


  • The southbound side of the Friendsville Road and SR 83 intersection is closed for 7 days. The detour route will be Highland Avenue to Cleveland Road to Milltown Road. Estimated completion: Monday, September 26, 2022
  • The entrance ramp from Cleveland Road to SR 83 south is closed for full-depth pavement replacement. The posted detour route will be SR 3 south to SR 604 east to SR 57 south to SR 585 south to SR 83. Estimated reopening: November 2022
  • The entrance ramps from Cleveland Road (SR 3) to SR 83/3 northbound and southbound are closed to ensure a safe work zone for the traveling public.
