"ODOT sent a bridge inspector to the Chardon Rd bridge over the I-271 southbound Local Lanes yesterday afternoon following a report made by the local police department. The inspection did not reveal any imminent danger of concrete falling. As a precaution, last night ODOT crews closed lanes on the I-271 southbound Local Lanes at Chardon Rd in order to further look at the bridge and perform routine bridge maintenance operations of removing any pieces that could become loose. In addition to that precaution, tonight crews will close lanes on the I-271 northbound Local Lanes at the Chardon Rd bridge starting at 8 pm thru 4 am to perform the same routine bridge maintenance operation of removing any pieces that could become loose."
