Roundabout work at I-75 & East Wooster gets underway

From BGSU OFFICE OF MARKETING & COMMUNICATIONS A major project is set to begin that will convert the intersection of I-75 and East Wooster Street/State Route 64 to a single-lane roundabout, the Ohio Department of Transportation has announced. By the time the work is completed in July 2019, there will also be a new path across the highway for walkers and bikers, a new bridge deck and aesthetic features to beautify the area. Through Sept. 3, there will be two lanes westbound and one eastbound on Wooster between Alumni Drive and Dunbridge Road, and some overnight lane restrictions on I-75 between Poe Road and Napoleon Road. On Sept. 4, a 14-day closure of the southbound ramp from I-75 to Wooster will begin. East Wooster will go down to one lane in each direction and overnight lane restrictions on the highway will be in force. Closure of the northbound I-75 ramp to and from Wooster Street will take place in the spring. During the project, pedestrian access will be maintained but there may be sidewalk restrictions on East Wooster. View a timeline and details at the project website.
