New Roadwork Projects Start Later This Week In Hancock County

8/7/17 – 5:22 A.M.

No new road closures start today in Hancock County, but ODOT is preparing for some projects to begin later this week. You’ll see daily lane closures on U.S. 68 between the Findlay airport and Eagle Creek starting Saturday. Crews are installing a cable median barrier there. The project also includes removing a flashing light at Western Avenue and the installation of overhead lighting.

Work will slow north and southbound traffic on I-75 north of Bluffton on Wednesday for around 20 minutes. Crews are removing overhead utility lines in that area. ODOT says the slowdown should start around 10 a.m. Wednesday.
