I-75 widening work resumes Monday with lane reductions

Lanes on Interstate 75 north of Findlay will be reduced starting Monday as reconstruction and widening work on the highway resumes, the Ohio Department of Transportation said Friday.
Beginning Monday, I-75 between Oil Center Road in Wood County and Hancock County 99 will be reduced from three lanes to two lanes in each direction as temporary pavement markings are installed to prepare for a traffic pattern change, the agency said.
At night, from about 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., this portion of I-75 may be reduced to one lane in each direction.
Paving of this portion of I-75 is expected to begin the week of April 3 and conclude by the end of April.
Separately, work will begin late next week or early the following week on the reconstruction and widening of I-75 in Findlay, ODOT said.
Interstate 75 both northbound and southbound from the area of the Blanchard River near Findlay High School to County 99 will be restricted to one lane at times during nighttime hours, ODOT said.
The restrictions are necessary to perform shoulder work and to install temporary pavement in preparation for future shifts in traffic patterns. This work will occur generally from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. each night.
Two lanes in each direction will be maintained on I-75 during daytime hours, ODOT said.
