There will be a major reconstruction of I-75 between State Route 725 and U.S. 35 which includes a traffic pattern shift, ramp closures and lane restrictions in each direction, according a spokesperson for the Ohio Department of Transportation.

There will also be new pavement, storm sewers, lighting, and minor bridge repairs.

Nightly lane closures are expected in each direction of I-75 from March 26 to April 21 and will take place from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m.

Crews will be working to shift one lane of the northbound traffic to the southbound side of I-75, ODOT said.

Estimated time of completion of this project is the summer of 2025.
