LIMA — Interstate 75 between state Route 81 and Stewart Road will continue to be restricted to one lane until the middle of next week, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation. This closure will allow crews to finish paving the concrete shoulder and passing lane.

On Monday, the southbound entrance and exit ramps at the Breese Road interchange will close for about a month. Traffic will be detoured to National Road and Dixie Highway back to Breese Road. The northbound entrance and exit ramps closed July 8 and will remain closed for a total of 70 days.

Bryn Mawr Avenue, closed since June 9 for a culvert replacement is open, as is the Johnny Appleseed bike path in the area of the Chicago, Fort Wayne & Eastern Railroad. All ramps at the state routes 65 and 81 interchanges are also open.
