According the the Ohio Department of Transportation, the reconstruction and lane addition on Interstate 75 through Findlay and Hancock County will begin next year, one year earlier than scheduled.
The project will take place from just south of Harrison Street/County Road 144, which is just south of the Ohio 15/U.S. Route 68 interchange, to the County Road 99 interchange in Findlay.
The project will reconstruct the existing pavement on Interstate 75, add a third travel lane in both the northbound and southbound direction, and will upgrade the roadway to modern highway standards.
The project is scheduled to go out for contractor bid in early December 2016. It is expected the project will begin in the spring and require three years to complete.
This section of Interstate 75, which was originally constructed in the 1950s, last saw major work in 1989.
Work currently under way on Interstate 75 north of Findlay will continue through fall of next year.
