Lane Closures Scheduled for I-75 Traffic Switch

 

Warren County (Thursday, Oct. 14, 2010) – In preparation to implement a traffic switch on Interstate 75, the left lane of southbound I-75 from Austin Blvd. to State Route 122 will be closed to traffic, beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15, with the closure of the center lane to follow at 10 p.m. All lanes are to reopen to traffic by 6 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 16.

These closures will permit work crews to switch southbound I-75 between Austin and SR 122 to the northbound side of I-75.

Traffic delays may be lengthy during this period of work.

This work is part of the widening and reconstruction of I-75 in Butler and Warren counties.

ODOT has a Target: Zero goal for any and all safety hazards. To help ensure the safety of construction workers and the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through a work zone.
