ODOT to hold hearing on Allen Co. work


LIMA, Ohio — The Ohio Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in Lima on the final phase of the I-75 reconstruction work in Allen County.

ODOT representatives and the contractor, Beaver Excavating Co., will discuss the schedule and traffic maintenance at Howard Johnson, 1920 Roschman Ave.

Expressway lanes from Auglaize County to south of Fourth Street will be rebuilt, along with interchanges for Breeze Road and State Rt. 675, and the Hanthon and McClain road bridges will be replaced. Phase three will begin in spring.

The current second phase should be finished next year, officials said.
