TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Get ready for another road construction headache: This one is going to affect anyone driving through downtown Toledo on I-75, and it begins Monday morning.

When you swing around I-75 from eastbound I-475, traffic will be squeezed down to two lanes up to Dorr Street. It's all part of a major $31 million road re-construction project.

In another week, the same project will begin on I-75 northbound from Dorr Street to the I-475 split.

"It's just due to the fact that pavement has reached its life cycle, which means it's time to be replaced," said Theresa Pollick, spokesperson for ODOT. "[It's] not a simple overlay to take care of it. It's got to be completely re-constructed."  

The Detroit Avenue ramp to southbound I-75 will be closed during the project.

It's recommended you add another 5-10 minutes to your drive time through the construction zone.

"And then once we finish the work on the inside of the pavement, we're going to move traffic to the inside and shut down the outside of the pavement, which will involve more ramp restrictions as we head into the coming years," Pollick added.

The I-75 project will be complete in July of 2016.
