Findlay Business Owner Wants ODOT To Make Changes In I-75 Construction Zone

1/22/18 – 5:08 A.M.

A local business owner wants ODOT to do more to prevent crashes in the construction zone on I-75 in Findlay. Garner Transportation Group Chief Executive Sherri Garner Brumbaugh tells the Courier the agency needs to post better warning signs. The request comes after a crash that backed up the northbound interstate for hours last week.

Brumbaugh tells the newspaper she spoke to ODOT about poor signage during the northern part of the interstate widening project, but that not much changed. She and Sheriff Mike Heldman are meeting with ODOT officials in the next couple of weeks.

Brumbaugh says ODOT should post flashing warning signs about slowed or stopped traffic farther in advance of the delays. She’s also calling for rumble strips a half-mile before the construction zone.
