Mary Alice Reporting: (Monday, December 17th) Delays are expected for today and beginning on Wednesday for two separate work restrictions.
Northbound and southbound lanes near Strasburg will be stopped briefly around 10:30 this morning for utility work.
Ohio Department of Transportation crews, along with Ohio State Highway Patrol Troopers will assist with alert signs and a rolling roadblock.
