Northbound Interstate 75 Rest Area
BOWLING GREEN (Tuesday, January 24, 2017) - The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District Two announces the northbound I-75 rest area in Wood County is now open. It was closed in August 2015 as part of the I-75 widening project’s maintenance of traffic plan. While closed to the public, ODOT also renovated the rest area including the plumbing, roof, interior finishings, and mechanical systems. The southbound I-75 rest area remains closed through June for renovations and pavement repair.
The Ohio Department of Transportation maintains the state's largest man-made asset--the transportation system. ODOT's mission is to provide the safe and easy movement of people and goods from place to place. As a $2.8 billion per year enterprise, ODOT invests the bulk of its resources in system preservation through maintenance, construction and snow and ice operations.
The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.
