Liberty Tunnel Interchange

Project Start Date:          Spring 2017

Project Completion:       Summer 2017

Project Description

The project consists of concrete patching and an asphalt overlay of West Liberty Avenue and Route 51 at the south portal of the tunnel.  Rehabilitation work will occur on two Route 51 bridges and on several ramps at the interchange.  Ramp closures, approximately two weeks in length each, will occur.  While mainline bridge work is occurring, motorists traveling north on Route 51 will be required to exit at the interchange, cross over West Liberty Avenue, and use the on-ramp to resume traveling northbound.  Additionally, overnight and weekend lane restrictions will be implemented.  The overall project is expected to conclude in July 2017.
