The Ohio Department of Transportation has installed signage this week indicating that the National Road I-75 overpass will be closed for three days beginning Friday, September 21, at 8 p.m.
The overpass will reopen Monday, September 24, at 5 a.m.
The resurfacing project has crews milling off a thin layer of concrete and then resurfacing the concrete deck. The entire project is slated to be completed in 57 hours. A complete closure was selected over the option of closing certain lanes of travel and having the project linger for several weeks.
The official detour will have drivers getting onto I-75 and travelling to the next exit, then getting back on the interstate in the opposite direction to get back to the National Road exit.
For drivers travelling east on National, they’ll take SB I-75 and exit on Benchwood Road, then take NB I-75 back to the National Road exit. For drivers going west, they’ll take NB I-75 to the Northwoods Boulevard exit, then get on SB I-75 to the National Road exit.
