PERRYSBURG - The Ohio Department of Transportation will be conducting more than 16 projects in Wood County as the 2013 construction season begins.
ODOT District 2 Deputy Director Todd Audet and Public Information Officer Theresa Pollick discussed the projects Wednesday.
The press conference was held at Books-A-Million in Levis Commons, both in deference to the rainy conditions, and to highlight one of the upcoming projects: a turn lane from northbound Ohio 25 onto eastbound Interstate 475.
Audet said that the state will be spending $170 million on over 70 projects in Northwest Ohio.
"Without good highways, our economy suffers," he said at the event.
Pollick said the new turn lane "will impact traffic at Levis Commons" to decrease the congestion experienced as the area expands.
The project is slated to cost approximately $333,000.
Among other projects slated for Wood County are:
• Work on a travel information center on I-75 southbound, south of Bowling Green, costing $318,000.
• I-75 widening between Ohio 199 and Ohio 582, costing $46 million.
• Replacement of a salt shed at the Wood County garage, costing $225,000.
• Resurfacing work on Ohio 105, between Ohio 199 to just east of Lemoyne Road, costing $577,000.
• Bridge repair on I-75 between the Ohio Turnpike and Buck Road, costing $115,000.
• A $1.1 million project on Ohio 163, including resurfacing and bridge repair.
• Hough Road resurfacing on Ohio 18, costing $350,000.
• Route 199 resurfacing from U.S. 23 in Fostoria to West Millgrove Road, costing $1.4 million.
• Resurfacing work on Route 25, costing $500,000, between Front Street to East South Boundary Street in Perrysburg.
• Resurfacing work on Ohio 64, from Wren Road to Route 582. Estimated cost is $1.4 million.
• Continued work on the North Main Street widening project in Bowling Green, slated to be completed this August, at a cost of $7.3 million.
• A lane addition on U.S. 20 at Lime City Road, costing $704,000.
• Railroad grade separation work at Wales Road between East Broadway Road and Drouillard Road, costing $12.3 million.
• Resurfacing work on I-280, from Lemoyne Road to Navarre Street in Lucas County, costing $7.6 million.
• Bridge deck and ramp work on I-75 at several sites in Wood and Lucas counties, costing $613,000.
