About the I-475 widening and reconstruction projects

Due to growing transportation needs on the west side of Toledo, ODOT has planned multiple projects to widen I-475 between the I-475/U.S. 23 split and U.S. 24. Planned projects will also include the construction of two new interchanges along I-475: At Dorr Street and at U.S. 20A. 

Construction phases

Phase A


Widening of mainline bridges and widening of I-475 between Central Avenue and Bancroft Street.

Phase B


Widening of I-475 between U.S. 20 (Central Avenue) and state Route 2 (Airport Highway), and the construction of a roundabout interchange at Dorr Street. This project is under construction and will continue through fall 2021.

Phase C


Widening of I-475 between Airport Highway and U.S. 24, and construction of a U.S. 20A interchange.

Current traffic impacts

I-475 between Angola Road and Bancroft Street, within the cities of Toledo and Rossford, will experience overnight lane closures in each direction for widening, reconstruction, and bridge work through fall 2023. Overnight ramp closures at interchanges within the work zone are possible.

The following ramps and streets are affected as part of the project:

  • Dorr Street westbound between Holland-Sylvania Road and McCord Road is closed through October 2020. Traffic is detoured onto Holland-Sylvania Road, Bancroft Street, and McCord Road back to Dorr Street.
  • Hill Avenue and Dorr Street between Holland-Sylvania Road and McCord Road could be closed temporarily at times for overhead bridge beam removal.
