Hudson — Drivers will get one more week before they’ll need to take a detour around Boston Mills Road, which will be closed at state Route 8.
Originally slated to close June 12, the Ohio Department of Transportation postponed the closing date to June 19.
Chittenden Road, which runs parallel to Route 8, is being extended from Route 303 to Boston Mills Road as one of the detour routes during construction. However, the Chitten
den Road project is not complete, according to ODOT representative Paula Putnam.
ODOT “can’t do anything with Boston Mills Road until Chittenden is completed,” Putnam said.
ODOT is finishing up paving and striping work, Putnam said.
Olde Route 8 is the detour for the west side of Route 8 traffic, Putnam said.
Boston Mills Road will be closed at Route 8 until fall of 2010 while construction of the new interchange at the site is completed, Putnam said. Drivers will not be able to access Route 8 from either side of Bost
on Mills Road.
“ODOT needs 12 months to build a bridge that will cross over Route 8 and become the new Boston Mills Road,” Putnam said.
The Hines Hill Road intersection will be open. Work at that intersection will not begin until the work on Boston Mills Road intersection is completed.
The Ohio Turnpike also will be accessible from Route 8, she added.
