at 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.

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.
