Ohio 444 shut down and rerouted
The section of Ohio 444 that runs along Wright Patterson Air Force Base will be permanently shut down and reconfigured starting Tuesday, Oct. 9. None of the Wright State entrances will be affected, but travelers using Ohio 444 to get to campus will be rerouted.
The stretch of Ohio 444 between W. Dayton Dr. and Dayton-Yellow Springs Rd. will be closed. Drivers traveling south on Ohio 444 will be rerouted to W. Dayton Dr., and to Kaufman Ave., S. Central Ave. or S. Maple Ave. Those traveling north will be rerouted to Dayton-Yellow Springs Rd. and Kaufman Ave.
The “reroute project” is being put into effect to enhance security around the base by consolidating the surrounding entrances.
