ROUTE 57 CONSTRUCTION BEGINS
DAY ONE ~ THREE CRASHESElyria – The construction barrels went up on Route 57 today in preparations for the paving project. The barrels are in the northbound lanes from Chestnut to Cleveland Street, southbound is still wide open but there are barrels sitting on the berm so those will be out soon too.
The confusion caused three car crashes this afternoon around 3 p.m., all within 30 minutes of each other. None of the three crashes were considered serious but one driver was transported by LifeCare Paramedics to Elyria Memorial Hospital after she complained of neck and back pains to Police.
Officials say that if you cannot find an alternate route and have to drive along 57 during the construction that you should slow down and pay very close attention. We only have about a year and a half to go before it is all over.
