Lima-area bridge work to divert I-75 traffic


LIMA, Ohio — Southbound I-75 traffic will be diverted through the interchange ramps at State Rts. 117/​309 late today into Tuesday during repairs to bridge approach slabs, the Ohio Department of Transportation.

The work from 8 p.m. today until 6 a.m. Tuesday will mark the first of three interchange-ramp detours this week for I-75 during its reconstruction in the Lima area.

During the same hours Wednesday night, southbound I-75 will use the Breese Road exit and entrance while bridge beams are set for the new Breese overpass. Northbound traffic will be detoured similarly at Breese on Thursday night.

The detour through the Routes 117/​309 interchange will close Routes 117/​309 during the affected hours. Traffic will be detoured to either State Rt. 81 or Fourth Street.
