Only right turns for motorists at Secor Rd. and Central Ave.

The Secor Road reconstruction project begins a new phase Monday, adding more headaches for motorists in West Toledo.
Starting Monday, all traffic at the intersection of Central Ave. and Secor Rd. is limited to right turns only. The restrictions will last for 10 days, according to the city of Toledo.
The lastest restrictions are part of the city's Secor Road reconstruction project which is estimated to cost around $5.5 million. The massive project includes work on waterlines and repairs to the roadway, just south of I-475. The city of Toledo is pitching in $1.9 million for the reconstruction with the remainder of funding coming from the state of Ohio.
The Secor/Central intersection will be completely reconstructed during the current phase of the project. Restricting motorists to only rights turns is the city's alternative to completely closing the intersection for the rebuilding.
In June, the city temporarily closed the entrance and exit ramps from I-475 to Secor Rd. while working one phase of the project.
The project is slated to be complete by Nov. 1, just ahead of the holiday season, according to city officials
