LEBANON (Tuesday, January 30, 2018) The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is hosting a matchmaking event for small and disadvantaged construction and consulting businesses.
This opportunity will allow eligible parties to meet the three teams proposing to design and construct Phase 5A (PID 104667) of the Interstate 75 Mill Creek Expressway in Hamilton County. 
The project involves widening and resurfacing I-75 from Monmouth Ave. to just south of Mitchell Ave. and reconstructing the I-74 and I-75 interchange. The estimated construction cost is $85 million and has a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Goal of 12 percent.
