HAN-IR75-14.39.pdfStatement of FindingsHAN-IR75-14.39
The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is improving the safety and mobility along the Interstate 75 (IR 75) by reconstructing and widening five miles of IR 75 from just south of the Ohio 15/U.S. Route 68 interchange with IR 75 to the County Road 99 interchange in Findlay.

The proposed project reconstructs IR 75 to current design standards and adds a travel lane in both directions of the interstate. As part of the proposed project, the Harrison Street overpass will be replaced. In addition, the Ohio 15/US 68 interchange at IR 75 was redesigned and will be reconstructed, as well as the interchange of Lima Avenue with Ohio15 and U.S. Route 68. The purpose of the project is to improve the underlying roadway, safety and efficiency of the corridor.
