Construction was done in phases starting in 2007. From 2011-2016, crews have been working on the last phase through downtown Dayton.

ODOT says the stretch of highway was heavily congested and confusing to drivers. According to ODOT, the construction came in under budget, and finished a year early.

Drivers will notice smoother, less congested commutes on the way to work or passing through–In addition to several new exit ramps that will go through the area.

Crews are still working on I-75 northbound to US-35 westbound ramp.

ODOT’s ribbon cutting ceremony will be on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
