This project was part of the Ohio Jobs and Progress Plan, the largest transportation initiative since the original creation of Ohio’s interstate system. The plan was created to generate more than 4,000 highway construction jobs, ease freeway congestion, improve road safety, and connect rural regions.
The I-75 rehabilitation was one of 14 major projects in the state being tracked by the Governor’s office as high priority. Mead & Hunt lead the design team for I-75 in Warren County. Critical to our successful outcome was effective use of public involvement meetings that gained valuable community input toward a roadway design better suited to the surrounding communities.
Our design covered nearly nine miles of roadway. This included pavement updates, median lane and concrete barrier additions, lighting, draining, bridge rehabilitations and replacements, new interchanges, raising of overhead bridges, noise walls, pavement markings, and signage.
