PORTAGE - Concerns about how the upcoming widening project on Interstate 75 could affect traffic on Ohio 25 will be the main topic at tonight's village council meeting.
"This meeting is more to keep a line of communication open," said Portage Mayor Mark Wolford this morning.
A third lane for I-75 is to be constructed starting in the spring as part of a $3 billion investment of Ohio Turnpike funds into the state's transportation system.
The $196 million I-75 widening plan will extend from Findlay to the Toledo area. The project has been moved up more than 13 years ahead of its original start date - it was originally to begin in 2027.
An Ohio Department of Transportation event this summer indicated that at least two lanes will be kept open on I-75 throughout construction, with most of the work taking place in the median.

It's becoming clearer how Wood County's general fund will be spent in 2014, as those in the commissioners office work to develop next year's budget.
Commissioners reviewed 2014 appropriations last week and will discuss the matter again Dec. 17.
Requests from county departments totaled $47,740,797 but were reduced by nearly $10 million as items were slashed from the budget, shifted to permanent improvements, made smaller, or put off until later. Half of the reductions come from the elimination of a $5 million expansion of the booking and medical areas at the county jail, requested by the sheriff's office for several years.
"Everybody has been very reasonable with their requests and what they are looking to spend," said Joe Fawcett, assistant county administrator.

Nicholas Huenefeld enjoys building Owens Community College's brand.
The Lake High School graduate is in charge of the school's athletics website and social media accounts.
Huenefeld, who has been the school's sports information director since January 2011, is in charge of posting information on Owens athletics on Twitter and Facebook, and also posts video on the school's YouTube page.
Owens has eight sports: men's and women's basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, men's and women's soccer and men's golf.
"You see BGSU and Toledo, and other schools with their presence on social media, and we have to get our name out there, and basically tell our story, who we are," Huenefeld said. "It's really grown over the last two-plus years and we're getting better every year."
