I-75 traffic to be slowed Wednesday for utility work
LIMA (Tuesday, February 10, 2015) Traffic on Interstate 75 north of Reservoir Road in Lima will be temporarily stopped Wednesday while work to place an overhead fiber optic cable takes place.
Beginning at approximately 10 a.m. Wednesday, law enforcement will slow and, if necessary, stop traffic approaching the work area in both the northbound and southbound direction for intervals of approximately 15 minutes each while the work occurs.
It’s expected that only one interruption of traffic will be needed to perform the work, but the operation could continue until noon, if needed.
Team Fishel of Columbus is performing the work on behalf of American Electric Power (AEP).
