Bridge demolition to close one lane of I-75 southbound

LIMA (Feb. 27, 2018) - The following impacts to traffic related to the reconstruction and widening of Interstate 75 through Findlay and Hancock County are scheduled to occur:

Interstate 75 southbound will be reduced to one lane in the southbound direction from county Road 99 to state Route 12, Findlay, on Wednesday, Feb. 28 and Thursday, March 1 for demolition of a bridge over an abandoned railroad.
The lane restriction will begin at approximately 9 p.m. each of those nights and conclude at approximately 7 a.m. the following day.
All Findlay exits will remain open during this time.
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 May 2020. Beaver Excavating, Canton, serves as the general contractor.
