Plans to widen I-75 to our north have been approved by the state. The Sentinel-Tribune reports the $195 million project in Wood County received final authorization from the state’s Transportation Review Advisory Council last week. The majority of the work will be paid for by borrowing against future tolls collected by the Ohio Turnpike. A press release from ODOT says without the turnpike funding it may have taken another 13 years to start the project.
Overall a total of $494 million has been authorized for northwest Ohio, including the efforts to expand I-75 to three lanes between Findlay and Toledo.
