MAJOR road construction alerts, detours and closures:
Interstate 75 Bridge Repairs
Operations for a dual bridge repair on Interstate 75 are scheduled to begin in September of 2020. The project involves repairing the I-75 bridges over Edwin C. Moses Boulevard and Carillon Boulevard near the Great Miami River in Dayton. Bridge work includes replacing bridge decks and removing the continuous U-turn lane from the Edwin C. Moses Boulevard interchange.
The Ruhlin Company was awarded the contract for approximately $18.8 million in July, and the project is scheduled to be completed in fall of 2022.

675 rehabilitation project
Montgomery County - ODOT District 8
A major rehabilitation project is underway on Interstate 675 in Greene County, as contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation pave the interstate from the Montgomery County line to North Fairfield Road. In addition to resurfacing nearly 58 lane miles, the project includes pavement repairs and bridge overlays, approach slab repairs and joint work on the mainline and overhead bridges within the project limits. In addition to single and double-lane restrictions in effect in either direction at varying times during the project, the following long-term impacts are currently in place:
- I-675 Southbound - A contraflow lane is now open for southbound motorists on the northbound side of I-675.
- U.S. 35 - The ramp from eastbound U.S. 35 to southbound I-675 is closed for up to 130-days, through mid-October. Traffic is being detoured by way of Research Boulevard, North Fairfield Road and westbound U.S. 35.
U.S. 35 CORRIDOR IN BOTH GREENE AND MONTGOMERY COUNTIES
Montgomery County - ODOT District 8
The Ohio Department of Transportation will begin a $13.2 Million project in July to upgrade the US 35 corridor between Interstate 75 in Dayton and Interstate 675 in Greene County. It will increase U.S. 35 from two to three lanes in each direction between Smithville Road in Dayton and I-675 in Beavercreek. The project, which has been in the works for nearly two decades, has a tentative completion date of August 2022. The first phase of the project widened the mainline bridges over Spinning Road and the Iron Horse Trail. The third phase, which is in the design phase and scheduled for construction in 2023, will modify the Woodman Drive interchange. During construction, drivers can expect ramp and lane restrictions at times.
- U.S. 35 Conduit Boring – U.S. 35 will experience 24/7 shoulder closures, in each direction, between Steve Whalen Boulevard and Dayton-Xenia Road, through Friday, January 8, 2021, at 7:00 a.m. Expect the shoulder closures to be less than 1000’ and in place for two weeks or less in each of the 10 locations.
Greene County - ODOT District 7
Various restrictions between Factory Road and Orchard Lane for construction of an RCUT-style Superstreet. Traffic on U.S. 35 will be maintained in a minimum of one lane in each direction. Intersecting streets will be affected at various intervals during construction. The project is scheduled to be completed in Summer 2021.
Traffic changes have been implemented in the work zone for the Restricted Crossing U-Turn (RCUT) project at US 42 and County Road 75 (Spring Valley Paintersville Road) in Greene County. Due to sight distance concerns at the routes’ intersection, westbound Spring Valley Paintersville Road (SVPR) is closed at US 42, and turning movements (left or right) to both north and southbound U.S. 42 are prohibited. All westbound SVPR traffic to US 42 is being detoured by way of SR 380 N and Krepps Road or SR.380 S and Roxanna New Burlington Rd. Due to sight distance concerns at the routes’ intersection, westbound Spring Valley Paintersville Road (SVPR) is closed at US 42, and turning movements (left or right) to both north and southbound US 42 are prohibited. All westbound SVPR traffic to US 42 is being detoured by way of SR 380 North and Krepps Road or S.R. 380 South and Roxanna New Burlington Road. The RCUT project calls for the elimination of left-turn movements from SVPR to US 42, as well as the cross-over movement through the intersection. Upon completion of the project, motorists on either direction of SVPR will be required to turn right onto US 42 and do a legal U-turn at a nearby crossover. Construction is anticipated to be completed in late fall of this year.
Single-lane restrictions between Factory Road and Orchard Lane weekdays from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. the following day and on weekends from 7 p.m. to 2 p.m. the following day. Restrictions will be lifted the weekend of Oct. 23-25. The project is scheduled to be completed in Summer 2022.
