    • As a result, southbound traffic will not be able to exit at the Ohio 12 interchange during that time. The southbound entrance and exit ramps at Findlay’s U.S. 224 interchange are already closed, until late November.
    • During those five hours Tuesday night, southbound I-75 traffic will be able to exit at Findlay’s Hancock County 99 interchange, but motorists will not be able to get on southbound I-75 from County 99.
    • After the I-75 traffic lanes are moved that night, one lane of I-75 southbound will be traveling on new pavement next to the median wall.
