I-75 Widening and reconstruction project
Interstate 75 in Hancock County from the area south of Harrison Street/County Road 144, which is just south of the state Route 15/U.S. Route 68 interchange, to the County Road 99 interchange in Findlay will be under construction beginning spring of 2017. The purpose of the project is to improve the safety and efficiency of the corridor and increase its capacity.
The project will add one travel lane in both the northbound and southbound direction along I-75 within the project area.
The interchanges at U.S. 68/SR 15 and Lima Avenue will also be reconstructed as part of the project. Beaver Construction, Canton, will serve as the general contractor for the project. The anticipated completion is May 2020.
Please see project information and construction updates below.
