It's about that time when drivers begin to notice more orange barrels popping up throughout the area as construction season begins for the Ohio Department of Transportation.
The construction kick-off event for ODOT District 4 was held near State Route 93 (Manchester Road) where crews are already working on a roadway widening project.
District 4 Public Information Officer Justin Chesnic says ODOT is going door-to-door to let businesses and residents know about how construction in the area will impact their commute.
"That has actually helped a lot of businesses prepare," said Chesnic. "It's actually cut back on our complaints that we've gotten and kind of helps them to understand what's coming their way."
Chesnic says one of the biggest projects in Summit County is a $53 million pavement replacement project on Interstate 271.
"It's a highway that's 50 to 60 years old. Not just the pavement, but the base underneath it, the concrete, is starting to fail - so we have to go and rebuild the road completely."
Chesnic says even though it's a busy construction season, no major closures will impact drivers on the interstates.
