New updates to I-75 and I-475 coming in 2020

TOLEDO (WTVG) - Some of the Ohio Department of Transportation's new construction projects beginning in 2020 have been in the works for decades.

One of them is the new Dorr Street intersection to I-475, which currently has westbound Dorr closed between Holland-Sylvania and McCord.

The new ramps to get on I-475 from Dorr Street are meant to relieve the congestion of traffic between the Central Avenue and Airport Highway entrances.

Over on I-75, the ramps on S. Erie and Collingwood Blvd. are set to finally reopen in August 2020. However, the ramps to I-75 from the Anthony Wayne Trail will then be closed in both directions for two years.

ODOT District Two Public Information Officer Rebecca Dangelo says the multi-year projects will be tedious but worth it to improve safety and decrease traffic congestion.
