Coronavirus fears cause Ohio people to cut almost all highways: ODOT | Instant News


CLEVELAND, Ohio – Ohio residents have cut their trips by almost half since Governor Mike DeWine called for restrictions to combat the spread of the new corona virus, data collected by the Ohio Department of Transportation suggest.

The department monitors traffic on several roads to assist planning, thus collecting the number of vehicles that use this road every day. For most of the day, calculations show, traffic across the state fell by more than 40% than usual, with some weekend days decreasing by more than 50%.

See below for changes in traffic on the road measured, by day, for various regions of the state.

This is what is shown by the latest data for several major highways in Cuyahoga Regency:
