A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
The pothole problem is affecting a major stretch of
highway in Toledo.
ODOT has closed down the right two northbound lanes of
I-75 from Collingwood to the I-475 interchange until further notice for
pavement repairs. ODOT's Theresa Pollick says traditional cold weather pothole
repair methods are not effective.
"With the cold temperatures and the fact we cannot get
the cold mix to stick to or adhere to any part of the roadway, the decision was
made to close it down for the safety of everybody involved," she said.
The measure was necessary because that stretch of I-75
has many curves and bends and drivers trying to avoid a pothole can often lead
to an accident.
ODOT is currently reviewing what work will be done for
the needed pavement repairs.
"Right now we're evaluating what we can do to make a more
permanent fix than just using the cold mix, so we're exploring all options,"
ODOT has also closed down the ramp from Detroit Avenue to
northbound 75 until further notice. A suggested alternate route is using Monroe
Street or Collingwood Boulevard.
