northbound, Findlay, traveling in three lanes beginning tomorrow
LIMA, Ohio (Dec. 18, 2018) - Highway crews plan to switch
Interstate 75 northbound between U.S. 224 and county Road 99,
Findlay, onto three new travel lanes in time for tomorrow
The switch was originally planned to occur last week but
was delayed due to weather.
All four lanes of I-75 in both directions between Sandusky
Street and U.S. 68/state Route 15 are currently traveling on the
southbound side. By tomorrow morning northbound traffic, just prior to
the U.S. 224 interchange, will be switched back over to the new
three lanes on the northbound side.
Lane closures on I-75 in the northbound
direction will continue tonight as crews work to place pavement
markings to denote the new traffic pattern. Traffic will be restricted
between 9 p.m. tonight until approximately 7 a.m. tomorrow
morning after which all three lanes will open.
Southbound traffic will continue to travel in two lanes
between U.S. 224 and county Road 99. By mid-January, the third lane
southbound is expected to open.
The driving surface throughout the project is an
intermediate pavement. The final driving surface will not be placed
until finish paving occurs in 2020, the last year of the project.
About the Hancock I-75 project:
Interstate 75 will be reconstructed and widened beginning
just south of Harrison Street/County Road 144, which is just south of
the U.S. Route 68/state Route 15 interchange, to the county Road 99
interchange, Findlay, Hancock County. The project will
reconstruct approximately five miles of the existing four lanes of
Interstate 75, construct an additional lane of travel in each
direction, replace all mainline bridges on I-75, replace the Harrison
Street overpass, redesign and reconstruct the interchange between U.S.
68/state Route 15 and Interstate 75, and redesign and reconstruct the
interchange with U.S. 68/state Route 15 at Lima Avenue. The project
also includes the construction of noise walls at particular locations.
Expected completion is late fall 2020. Beaver Excavating,
Canton, serves as the general contractor.
