ODOT: New Segments of U.S. Route 24 Open to Traffic


 U.S. Route 24 - Fort to Port Realignment/Expansion


The map above provides links to information concerning the various projects on U.S. 24 which will expand this important northwest Ohio route from two lanes to four between Fort Wayne, Ind. and Toledo, Ohio.

The expansion of U.S. 24, referred to as the Fort to Port project, officially began in 2006 when work commenced on a 2.2-mile stretch of the roadway in Defiance County.  A total of eight projects will be constructed in Ohio through Paulding, Defiance, Henry and Lucas counties to complete the expansion of the route.

By fall 2009, motorists will be able to travel four-lane U.S. 24 from SR 101 in Indiana to Napoleon in Ohio. The entire stretch of the route from Fort Wayne, Ind. to Toledo, Ohio is expected to be opened for travel in 2011.
