Wayne County: Construction update

For the week of August 8, 2022

WAYNE COUNTY (Thursday, August 4, 2022) – The following construction projects are anticipated to affect highways in Wayne County next week. All outlined work is weather permitting.

State Route 3 bridge painting – State Route 3, between the U.S. 250/U.S. 30 interchange and Columbus Avenue Ext., will have lane closures for a bridge painting project. Estimated completion: September 2022

U.S. Route 30 culvert replacement – U.S. 30 eastbound and westbound, between U.S. 250 and Fry Road, will have single lane closures for a culvert repair project. Lane closures are scheduled to begin Friday, August 5. Estimated completion: September 2022

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 intersection at SR 83 and Friendsville Road is only open to “Right Turn Only” movements. This is a 7-day closure for crews to complete pavement removal and replacement. Please pay attention and drive with caution through the work zone.


  • 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. The detour route will be to continue on SR 83/3 southbound to the SR 585 exit, exit onto SR 585 and reenter on SR 83/3 northbound. There is no estimation as to when this ramp will reopen, and it will remain closed until further notice.
  • SR 3/83 has been placed into a contraflow pattern, from just north of SR 585 to Milltown Road. One lane of northbound traffic will be crossed over, just north of SR 585, to the southbound side of the road in order for crews to begin pavement removal on the northbound lanes.
  • Northbound and southbound traffic will be divided by portable concrete barrier wall, from just north of SR 585 to just south of Cleveland Road.
  • From just south of Cleveland Road to Milltown Road, northbound and southbound traffic will both still be on the south side of the road; however, cones will divide traffic in this area.
  • Traffic will be maintained in one 11’ lane in each direction at all times.

Estimated completion: October 2023
