The $61 million project includes interchange improvements at I-270/670 on the east side of Columbus and the construction of Ohio's first SmartLane on I-670 eastbound. The SmarLane allows an extra travel lane to open only during certain times when drivers need congestion relief the most. The I-670 SmartLane will begin just east of I-71 in downtown Columbus and extend to I-270 on the east side.
The SmartLane is now functional.
At the I-270/I-670 interchange, ODOT will build two new ramp bridges to carry I-670 eastbound traffic to I-270 and I-270 traffic through the Easton area. The project also includes noise wall construction.
