A problem in an expansion joint caused ODOT to restrict traffic on northbound I-75 in Toledo on Thursday.
Northbound I-75 was closed at Berdan Avenue in Toledo earlier Thursday because of an expansion joint problem at the bridge over Lagrange Street.
ODOT reopened one lane by noon after setting up traffic control.
Traffic is being directed through local streets by police. Motorists are advised to expect mounting congestion in the entire neighborhood.
Through traffic should use State Rt. 795 and I-280 to avoid long delays. Miami to Front is another local option to reach I-280 from I-75 northbound.
