Anthony Wayne Trail closure to last through Thursday

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Drivers heading to downtown Toledo this week will continue to see orange barrels at a busy interchange.

Northbound Anthony Wayne Trail between Collingwood and Erie, and the intersection of Anthony Wayne Trail and Erie are still closed for construction on the Gateway Project.

The city says that during the closures, access to the expressway in both directions will be maintained.

These closures were initially expected to wrap up by Tuesday morning at 6:00 AM. But, the City of Toledo says that rain on Monday delayed pavement work, pushing the reopening back to Thursday morning at 6:00 AM. The city says that it hopes to reopen all three lanes when the road reopens, although single lane closures may still be possible south of the Anthony Wayne Trail/Erie Street intersection for more pavement work. The city says that all three lanes should be open by the first week of November.

Rebecca Shirling with ODOT tells 13abc that the closure on the ramp from northbound I-75 to downtown Toledo has also been extended. Drivers on the expressway will have to detour using the exit to Detroit Avenue to Monroe Street. Otherwise, drivers can use Dorr Street to Washington Street to access downtown Toledo.

The city says that work will continue on Lafayette and sewer work related to the project through the end of this year. Site work for art work and seeding will be finished next year.
