A major bridge construction project will kick off in Findlay next month. ODOT officials talked about the process of replacing the U.S. 224 bridge over I-75 during a Thursday meeting at Owens Community College. Construction project engineer Chris Hughes tells the Courier the new bridge will feature six lanes, including two turn lanes, will be raised four feet, and will have a sidewalk on the southern side.
The bridge will be built in halves, so it will be open to at least one lane of traffic for most of the construction process. However it will be completely closed at least twice, the first time at the end of February. A detour will be put in place, and traffic from I-75 will be sent up the current exit ramp and down the other side.
The project is expected to be finished in the late fall.
