Final section to open in Fort to Port Highway

The final stage of the Fort to Port Highway between the beltways around Toledo and Fort Wayne, Ind., is scheduled to open today.

The Indiana Department of Transportation has scheduled a ribbon ceremony during the morning for the 8.3-mile section between Indiana State Rt. 101 and the I-469 beltway. InDOT officials said the road will open later in the day.

Ohio opened its final piece of the four-lane highway linking I-475 and I-469 in late August. Built in stages over the last nine years, the project included new roadway west of Defiance and east of Napoleon, where old U.S. 24 was a twisting two-lane road following the Maumee River.

A 2.9-mile section between the Ohio-Indiana border and Route 101 opened three years ago.
