Traffic on southbound I-75 will be slow Thursday near the DiSalle Bridge as crews work on a “sizeable” pothole, the Ohio Department of Transportation announced.
Vehicles will be restricted to one lane while work is ongoing and delays in the area are expected. Because of the pothole’s size — about six feet wide, 12 feet long, and eight inches deep — crews could not wait until after rush hour, officials said.
SB I-75 at the DiSalle bridge will remain reduced to 1 lane for pothole repair for most of the day. The pothole is sizable so we could not wait until after rush hour to repair. Delays expected, especially during peak hours. Check #Ohgo for updates: https://t.co/9HOIrrnTa1 pic.twitter.com/KxRnoh0jFL— ODOT Toledo (@ODOT_Toledo) September 6, 2018
As of 4 p.m., ODOT said the repairs were expected to be finished by about 7 p.m., leaving the bridge choked through the evening rush. To take advantage of the lane closings, the department also called in a lighting contractor to do planned work at the same time.
