If you live in the Richmond area, you'll want to pay attention to this traffic alert that could impact any road travels this weekend.

U.S. 27 access over I-70 and left-turn motions at the Exit 151 interchange will be restricted starting at 9-o-clock on Friday night, until 6-o-clock on Monday morning.

During this time, eastbound I-70 traffic seeking northbound U.S. 27 should continue east to the State Road 227 interchange, return westbound, and then access northbound U.S. 27 from westbound I-70.

Coming from the opposite direction, westbound I-70 traffic seeking southbound U.S. 27 should continue west to the U.S. 35 exit interchange, return eastbound, and then access southbound U.S. 27 from eastbound I-70.

If you're heading southbound on U.S. 27, you can access eastbound I-70 by taking westbound I-70 to the U.S. 35 exit interchange, to return eastbound.

And, if you're traveling northbound on U.S. 27, you can access westbound I-70 by taking eastbound I-70 to the State Road 227 exit interchange, to return westbound.

This closure is happening to complete a bridge maintenance and preservation project, so though it might give some headaches this weekend, in the long run,it'll be worth it.
