Kirila Contractors Inc. is moving more quickly than anticipated on the Bedford Road project in Brookfield, said the Ohio Department of Transportation.

Kirila is widening and paving the road between Stewart Sharon Road and Route 62.

The section of road under construction will be closed southbound beginning Monday, April 6, weather permitting, instead of in May as had been previously announced, ODOT said.

The lane restriction is expected to continue into October.

Motorists who wish to travel southbound on Bedford will be rerouted westbound on Stewart Sharon Road and then southbound on Hubbard Thomas Road to Route 62.
