ODOT seeks comments on I-475 Airport Highway interchange


BOWLING GREEN – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is holding a virtual open house to gather input on options to improve the interchange of Interstate 475 with Airport Highway.

A feasibility study is being conducted to explore options to improve safety and reduce congestion at the interchange. The study also proposes to construct a multi-use path along Airport Highway from Holland-Sylvania Road to McCord Road. Additional improvements include upgrades to sidewalks and crosswalks, curbs and gutters, roadway drainage, and lighting.

The materials available online explain the overall study and present the findings of the study so far, including potential impacts such as permanent and temporary right-of-way needs. Specific detour information is not known at this time. Currently, the recommended alternative is to construction a diverging diamond interchange (DDI). Future public involvement will occur when a preferred alternative is chosen.

The study and other materials are available at the following link. Comments regarding the study may be submitted at this link and through other means through June 16:
