Two lanes closed on I-75 NB for re-pavement project

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Starting Thursday, Aug. 14, at 7 p.m., two lanes of I-75 northbound from the Anthony Wayne Trail to the 74/475 split will be closed, leaving only two lanes of traffic open.

The ramp from northbound I-75 to westbound I-475 will be reduced to one lane.

This is all part of a re-pavement project that the Ohio Department of Transportation says is desperately needed.

"As many drivers know in the area we had to shut down a few lanes over the winter just because the pavement was deteriorating and the weather did not help us at all, So it's come to the end of its age, it needs to be replaced," said ODOT Public Information Officer Theresa Pollick.

The project will be complete in June of 2016, weather permitting.
