Detours, Delays Ahead for Area Commuters

Construction is expected to begin on the new bridge at the Crooked Creek interchange, and that means traffic needs to be moved off the interstate. Rush hour travelers shouldn't be affected, unless they're running late. If you drive between nine in the morning and four in the afternoon, be prepared to slow down.

While drivers are forced to drive on the exit ramps, some community leaders say just think about the possibilities. Ultimately a four lane flyover will join seamlessly with I-64 traffic, moving large trucks away from places like the Teays Valley exit.

Once the building of the I-64 bridge begins, nearly 13 miles of Route 35 will be under construction at the same time. The entire project is expected to be finished in two years.
