I-75 and St. Rt. 73 intersection Traffic Update: Oct. 9, 2023
The Warren County TID project at SR 73 and I-75 will be closing the Southbound I-75 ramp to SR 73 on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2023 from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. for milling and paving in front of that exit ramp.
The detour will be south on I-75 to SR 123 exit then back north on I-75 to the SR 73 exit.
In addition, this work will require the closure of the right lane of Westbound SR 73 from Sharts Rd to Commerce Center Drive.
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.
