U.S Route 24 is a major shipping route in Northwest
Ohio, with trucks representing one third of traffic. The expansion of U.S. 24 into a four-lane divided highway will alleviate safety concerns caused by the mixture of truck traffic and residential travel along the current highway.
Construction of the new alignment, from Napoleon to Toledo began in 2008 and is now complete. The U.S. Route 24, from Fort Wayne, Indiana to Toledo is open in both directions.
