ODOT installs signs promises crackdown to prevent accidents in 70/71 split
Columbus drivers may have to change their commute.
The Ohio Department of Transportion will place new signs in downtown Columbus trying to force traffic to flow differently in an effort to reduce accidents and congestion.
The changes could come as early as the end of this week. ODOT will post signs near three congested, crash-prone, on ramps within the I-70/71 split. The signs will remind drivers it is illegal to cut across multiple lanes of traffic to get where they are going.
