About the Hancock I-75
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.
