State Route 64/65 Slide Project in Wood County

(Tuesday, October 15, 2013) - The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) announces the selection of the preferred alternatives for the slide projects impacting State Routes 64/65 between Reitz Road and the Waterville bridge and the area on State Route 65 between Weston Road and Otsego Pike.

In both areas, ODOT has selected to move forward with installing road side retaining walls to avoid further damage to the slopes and roadway along the Maumee River. 
Both preferred alternatives do not require any property relocation.  Minimal land acquisition will be necessary near the slope areas. 
The next step for the project will be to finalize design plans for both areas.   Construction on the projects is scheduled to begin in 2015.
