The following is the weekly report of construction and maintenance work on state highways from the Ohio Department of Transportation:
The U.S. 224 interchange with Interstate 75 is currently being reconstructed. The project began in February and is expected to be completed late this fall. The following traffic impacts related to the reconstruction will occur in the upcoming week:
• Interstate 75 both northbound and southbound lanes are narrowed and shifted approaching the U.S. 224 interchange at Findlay during reconstruction of the interchange. Lane restrictions are occurring on occasion in the southbound direction between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. mostly during the week but on some weekends as well.
• Placement of the beams for the new bridge structure over Interstate 75 at U.S. 224 which was scheduled to take place this week has been delayed until late May.
• U.S. 224 traffic on the bridge over Interstate 75 is traveling on the north half of the bridge, one lane in each direction with no turn lanes, during a complete reconstruction of the interchange. All ramps at the interchange are currently open. The project began in February and is expected to be completed late this fall.
• U.S. 224 on the east side of Findlay between Plaza Road (Best Buy) and Hancock County 236 is occasionally restricted to one lane during a traffic signal upgrade project. Intersections are currently being switched over to the new signal equipment, which should be completed by midweek.
• Ohio 235 from Hancock County Road 304 (old U.S. 30) about three miles north of Ada to Hancock County 313 (old 25) just north of Interstate 75 closed April 21 for 21 days for grinding and paving of the roadway.
• Ohio 568 between Lye Creek just west of the Hancock County fairgrounds to Hancock County 180 will be restricted to one lane beginning mid-week for pavement repair in preparation for resurfacing.
• Ohio 330 from Ohio 15 to Vanlue High School will be restricted to one lane for pavement repair in preparation for resurfacing.
• Ohio 15 between U.S. 23 in Carey to Ohio 37 in Findlay is restricted to one lane during daytime and nighttime hours. Paving operations are taking place during the day while removal of deteriorated pavement is occurring at night. Work is occurring in both the eastbound and westbound direction.
• Restrictions on Interstate 75 northbound are expected to continue this week while concrete is trucked in and poured on the deck of a new bridge structure over the railroad. The operation will occur during both daytime and nighttime hours.
• In the coming weeks, work will take place on Interstate 75 northbound in the area of the Ohio 65 interchange on construction of a temporary bridge structure over the railroad north of Ohio 65. The structure will allow for traffic to be maintained on I-75 during construction.
• Motorists should be aware that all entrance and exit ramp merge areas have been shortened throughout the project area. Drivers on Interstate 75 are encouraged to use the passing lane through the zone if they do not wish to exit.
Through August, intermittent lane restrictions are possible on Ohio 18, between Ohio 65 and the Henry/Wood County line for resurfacing and bridge work. Traffic will be maintained by flaggers.
• Ohio 108 in the village of Miller City is open following a railroad crossing repair.
• U.S. 224 between Ottawa and the Hancock County line will be reduced to one lane for sealing of pavement cracks.
• Beginning today, Ohio 12 between Ohio 635 and Ohio 590 will be closed for bridge replacement. The work will continue through July.
• Through August, intermittent lane restrictions are possible on Ohio 582 between Ohio 25 and Ohio 65 for resurfacing. Traffic will be maintained by flaggers.
U.S. 23 from just south of Ohio 182 to just north of U.S. 30 will be restricted on Wednesday, weather permitting, for guardrail repair and bridge deck patching.
