Drivers being detoured around closed I-275/SR 32 ramp

Drivers headed north on Interstate 275 at the westbound state Route 32 exit ramp are being detoured because of an accident this morning. The ramp from Interstate 275 north to westbound state Route 32 is closed temporarily after a late-morning accident.

A tractor-trailer overturned on the ramp shortly after 11 a.m. today, said Lt. Scott Gaviglia with Union Township Police.

The ramp is expected to re-open sometime after 3 p.m., Gaviglia said.

Until then, drivers headed north on I-275 at the westbound state Route 32 exit ramp are asked to continue north on Interstate 275 to the westbound Milford Parkway exit ramp.

Drivers should then take westbound Milford Parkway to the southbound I-275 ramp and re-enter the interstate.

Drivers should then take southbound I-275 to the westbound state Route 32 exit ramp.

No injuries were reported and no other vehicles were involved in the accident, Gaviglia said.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol also responded to the accident.

The crash investigation is still pending, and no charges or citations have been filed at this time, said Gaviglia.Source
