The reduce speed limit in construction zones remains in effect, even when workers are not present. Due to changes in the normal roadway configuration, the reduced speed is enforced for the safety of our workers and motorists. A work zone will remain up for the duration of a project – check the Daily and Extended Construction Zones section of the website for more information. We appreciate your help in keeping the Ohio Turnpike one of the safest roads in the country!
