HANCOCK COUNTY: Lanes of I-75 southbound to shift tonight

Temporary traffic slow-downs to occur

The following are current or upcoming traffic impacts related to the reconstruction and widening of Interstate 75 in Hancock County through the city of Findlay. All work is weather dependent.



Traffic on Interstate 75 southbound through Findlay will be reduced to one lane and temporarily slowed tonight into Saturday morning during a traffic pattern shift.

The lanes of I-75 southbound from the U.S. 68/state Route 15 exit ramp to the south end of the project near Harrison Street will be shifted to the west onto new pavement. The shift will allow crews to continue to reconstruct the existing pavement on I-75.

Preparations for the shift will begin at approximately 9 p.m. this evening when I-75 from the state Route 12 interchange to the U.S. 68/state Route 15 exit ramp will be reduced to one lane.

At midnight, local law enforcement will begin to slow southbound traffic for short intervals, beginning at the state Route 12 interchange, while the shift occurs. 

All work related to the shift is expected to be completed by 7 a.m. Saturday.

The new traffic pattern will eliminate the current contraflow lane southbound in this area, which currently places one lane of southbound traffic on the northbound side.


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 fall of 2020. Beaver Excavating, Canton, serves as the general contractor.
