ODOT Closing Section of Robert Drive in Downtown Dayton
Robert Drive in Dayton will be closed between Fifth Street and Third Street beginning Wednesday, February 13that 8 am. This will be a 24 hour a day closure.  The affected section of Robert Drive is scheduled to reopen to motorists in September of 2017. 

This road closure is due to a contractor reconstructing I-75 through downtown Dayton.

The official detour during this closure is:

Southbound: Perry Street to Fourth Street

Northbound: Fifth Street to Wilkinson

Signs will be in place prior to the work zone to alert motorists of the upcoming closure.  All work is weather permitting.

Safety is a top priority at ODOT.  To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.

Ohio’s highways are essential to keeping and creating new jobs.  With a mission to provide easy movement of people and goods from place to place, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is responsible for maintaining one of the largest transportation networks in the nation.  Guided by ethical principles and accountability, ODOT works to improve safety, enhance travel and advance economic development.  As a $2.8 billion enterprise, the department wisely invests in its core services of snow and ice removal, annual construction program and highway maintenance operations.
