LIMA, Ohio — Northbound I-75 ramps at the State Rt. 81 interchange should reopen today following reconstruction of Route 81, with southbound ramps there expected to close Sunday night for similar work, the Ohio Department of Transportation said.
As part of a broader I-75 reconstruction through Lima, state contractors are rebuilding interchanges at Route 81 and at State Rts. 117/309 — work that includes rebuilding Route 81 near the freeway.
The southbound ramps are expected to be closed for about two weeks, with traffic detoured to either the Bluelick Road or Fourth Street interchanges.
