There will be a right lane closure on westbound St Rt 73 in Franklin and Springboro on Sunday night, Sept. 24, 2023 to facilitate removal of barrier wall on the project. The closure will run on westbound St. Rt. 73 from Sharts Road to Conover Drive. There also will be traffic restrictions on the northbound exit ramp from I-75 to St. Rt. 73 the same night.
Interchange makeover project underway
The I-75 and St. Rt. 73 intersection located in the City of Springboro and the City of Franklin is getting a makeover, thanks to an Ohio Department of Transportation Safety Grant and a partnership between the two cities, Warren County Transportation Improvement District (WCTID) and ODOT.
The Interchange Safety and Aesthetics Project will be completed in three phases, with the first phase--the start of the aesthetics – tree and shrub plantings outside of the work area for the safety project—is underway. Following, the safety portion of the project will be started with the addition of turn lanes off the northbound exit ramp on St. Rt. 73 under the I-75 overpass as well as an additional turn lane on the I-75 northbound off ramp. After the safety improvements are complete – the remainder of the aesthetic improvements will be completed, including gateway enhancements. ODOT funded 100% of the safety portion of the project for about $2 million. WCTID is managing the project.
