Lane Closures on Interstate 75 Scheduled
Work resumes on reconstruction, widening
Warren County (Thursday, March 22, 2012) – With the return of warm temperatures to Ohio, reconstruction and widening work on Interstate 75 resumes in earnest.
As such, various lane closures on northbound I-75 are scheduled for next week to put in place traffic lane switches for bridge painting operations. Nightly closures are to begin at 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and will be placed in various locations the length of the project which runs from State Route 122 to the Warren/Montgomery county line. All lanes are to reopen to traffic by 6 a.m. the following day.
Traffic delays could become significant during these closure times.
Arrow boards and signs will be in place prior to the work zone to alert motorists of the upcoming lane closures.
To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
