Final stage of I-75 rebuild in NW Ohio getting underway

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The last stage of rebuilding Interstate 75 through northwestern Ohio is getting underway.

But it will still be two more years before the entire project is finished.

The work that began in 2014 will eventually widen I-75 from two lanes to three lanes in each direction between suburban Toledo and Findlay.

Work this year will start on more widening of lanes and the building of new off ramps.

The Ohio Department of Transportation says it’s expected to take most of three construction seasons to finish the road work. It says all lanes and ramps are scheduled to open by the fall of 2019.
