Akron Beltway Closings on Again for Wednesday Night

AKRON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – An about-face in Akron.

The earlier delayed ramp closings along the Beltway will kick in Wednesday night starting at 8 p.m.

The major impact for Stark County-area drivers: the ramp from Eastbound I-76 to Southbound I-77 will close.

That means I-77 South through drivers will need to use the Kenmore Leg and I-277/Route 224.

There are a couple of other major closings as well, as noted by ODOT:

I-76/U.S. 224 eastbound to I-76/Kenmore Leg northbound. The detour will be I-76 eastbound to SR 21 northbound.

I-76/Kenmore Leg northbound to I-76 eastbound/I-77 southbound. The detour will be I-77 northbound to Copley Rd. to I-77 southbound.
