State Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) announced that the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) recently released details on two adjacent renovation projects to sections of I-75, including Downtown Toledo and the DiSalle Bridge, crossed by tens of thousands of cars daily.

“Toledo is a central point for travelers heading to Detroit, Chicago and New York. With a safe, modern transportation network, we can attract visitors to Maumee Bay State Park and the Museum of Art, and create many new jobs in the process,” said Sheehy, Ranking Member of the House Transportation and Public Safety Committee. “With improved ramps and added lanes, getting around the area is going to be much smoother and much safer.”

ODOT estimated the cost at $155 million for downtown-area upgrades and $135 million for the second roadway project, including repairs to the DiSalle Bridge.
