ODOT Wants Your Thoughts On Proposed Bridge Project In Findlay

The Ohio Department of Transportation is seeking public comment on a proposed bridge repair project just south of Findlay.

ODOT is proposing repairing the U.S. 68 bridge over State Route 15.

The project would require temporary closures of the bridge, and traffic would have to be detoured.

During construction, temporary lane restrictions on State Route 15 would also occur.

ODOT says a portion of the work would occur in the regulated floodplain of Eagle Creek, with impacts to the floodplain anticipated to be minor and resulting in no rise in localized flood levels.

ODOT is seeking feedback on the project in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Executive Order 11988.

If the project goes ahead it would likely occur in the summer of 2020.
