Ramp closure at U.S. 35, I-75 interchange in Dayton will be delayed

DAYTON — An Ohio Department of Transportation project set to close the U.S. 35 East ramp to I-75 South in Dayton for months starting tomorrow will be delayed, the state announced today.

The delay is due to weather conditions and a new closure date has not yet been announced.

The ramp at the U.S. 35, I-75 interchange will eventually close, so a contractor can replace the bridge that crosses over Albany Street, an ODOT spokesperson said in a media release.

It’s also unclear when the project will now end. It originally was slated to be wrapped up in August.

When the closure does happen, traffic will be diverted to the northbound I-75 exit from eastbound U.S. 35. The detour will take drivers onto the Second Street exit, exit 53, to turn left at the bottom of the ramp and left again to return to southbound I-75, the ODOT spokesperson said.

The ramp from westbound U.S. 35 to southbound I-75 also remains part of an ODOT project that will see construction on the ramp through the end of August as well. However that ramp will remain open during the project.
