MIAMI COUNTY — Southbound I-75 will be down to only one lane through a portion of Miami County starting this afternoon due to a roadwork project, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation.
The construction will block one of the two lanes on southbound I-75 starting at the U.S. 36 exit to Piqua through the County Road 25A exit just north of Troy, ODOT announced in a social media post Wednesday.

The project and lane restrictions start at 1 p.m. Wednesday and are expected to wrap up around 5 a.m. Thursday.
As traffic backs up in the area, especially during the Wednesday evening commute, the suggested detour from the WHIO Traffic Center is:
- Exit SB I-75 at the County Road 25A exit in Piqua.
- Take County Road 25A south through Piqua and reenter SB I-75 at the entry ramp, which is approximately one mile south of the Piqua city limits.
