The Interstate 75 northbound exit and entrance ramps at U.S. 224 will close Monday for reconstruction, as part of the interstate widening project through Findlay.
U.S. 224 over Interstate 75, and the Interstate 75 southbound exit and entrance ramps at U.S. 224, will not be affected, the Ohio Department of Transportation says.
The exit ramp from Interstate 75 northbound to U.S. 224 will close for about 60 days.
Northbound I-75 traffic that wishes to reach U.S. 224 will be detoured to County Road 99, then south on Interstate 75 to U.S. 224.
The entrance ramp from U.S. 224 to Interstate 75 northbound will close for about 30 days.
U.S. 224 motorists seeking to go north on I-75 will be detoured south on Interstate 75 to Ohio 12, then north on I-75.
Separately, both lanes of Interstate 75 northbound between U.S. 224 and County Road 99 will be shifted onto the southbound side of the highway next week to allow reconstruction work to continue on the northbound side of the highway.
Interstate 75 northbound will be restricted to one lane between 9 p.m. Monday and 7 a.m. Tuesday to allow crews to shift the travel lanes. Also, Interstate 75 northbound will be temporarily stopped in short intervals between midnight Monday and 5 a.m. Tuesday.
Access to all Findlay exits will be maintained along Interstate 75 northbound, except the ramps on Interstate 75 northbound at U.S. 224, which will be closed for reconstruction, and the ramp from northbound Interstate 75 to U.S. 68/Ohio 15, which closed last year for three years.
Separately, the ramp from U.S. 68/Ohio 15 to Interstate 75 southbound will be closed between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Tuesday for the setting of bridge beams.
Traffic will be detoured onto Interstate 75 northbound to Ohio 12, then back to Interstate 75 southbound.
