Construction


Construction ALERT:

Coming to visit us could prove to be a bit more difficult for the next few months

You may have heard about the recent closure of the Central Interchange for nearly the next year. Depending on where you’re coming from this may cause a bit of a headache getting to OPEN M. Here are some updates to make it maybe a little less stressful for you!

For any additional updates please check out

 We’ll do our best to keep this as updated as we can while all of these projects are underway. These large construction projects seem to be pretty organic in nature, so bear with us as things may just change day to day.
Here are our current recommendations on how to come see us over at OPEN M:


The ramp from I-77 northbound to I-76 westbound will be CLOSED. The detour will be I-277 westbound to I-76/Kenmore Leg eastbound. You will be able to take Kenmore Ave to Lakeshore or the Lakeshore exit from I-76E to get to OPEN M. Just head up the hill to Princeton St.
The ramp from SR 8 southbound to I-76 westbound will be CLOSED. The detour will be I-77 southbound to I-277 westbound to I-76/Kenmore Leg eastbound. Yes, you will be driving farther south on I-77 than think. You will be able to take Kenmore Ave to Lakeshore or the Lakeshore exit from I-76E to get to OPEN M. Rt. 59 is also available, but with reduced lanes with access to Lakeshore and South St. (Just head up the hill to Princeton St. ).
You may experience some lane restrictions and an overall increase in the amount of traffic. Exit 21C / Dart Ave. is scheduled to remain open at this time. Just plan on adding a few extra minutes to your travel time based on everything else being shut down.
