ODOT Closing First & Third Street I-75 Exits on October 15, 2012
The ramps from I-75 northbound to First Street and Third Street will be closed beginning Monday, October 15th at 9 am.  These will be 24 hour a day ramp closures.  A newly constructed ramp is scheduled to open to motorists in the downtown area in December of 2016. 

These ramp closures are due to a contractor reconfiguring I-75 in that location.  This is part of the final phase of the I-75 modernization project.

The official detour during these ramp closures is: I-75 North to US 35 East to Jefferson St to First and Third Streets. (motorists can also use Main Street or Edwin C. Moses Boulevard)

Arrow boards and signs will be in place prior to the work zone to alert motorists of the upcoming closure.  All work is weather permitting.

Safety is a top priority at ODOT.  To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.

Ohio’s highways are essential to keeping and creating new jobs.  With a mission to provide easy movement of people and goods from place to place, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is responsible for maintaining one of the largest transportation networks in the nation.  Guided by ethical principles and accountability, ODOT works to improve safety, enhance travel and advance economic development.  As a $2.8 billion enterprise, the department wisely invests in its core services of snow and ice removal, annual construction program and highway maintenance operations.
