I-75 Downtown UpdateFinal Phase of I-75 Modernization Project
Please be aware that there is ongoing road construction on Interstate 75 and in the downtown Dayton area, so travel delays and detours are possible. The state of Ohio's Interstate 75 modernization project will result in many exit ramp changes through downtown Dayton as the project progresses. The final phase began in October and will impact several exits in downtown Dayton.

I-75 Construction Update: The following southbound I-75 ramps in downtown Dayton are now permanently closed and will be replaced with a newly constructed ramp that is scheduled to open in 2016:

  • Ramps from I-75 south to First Street and Third Street
  • Ramps from Monument Avenue and Second Street to I-75 South

The following ramps will remain open and serve as primary detours to access downtown Dayton:

  • Jefferson Street off U.S. 35
  • Main Street off I-75
  • Edwin C. Moses Boulevard off I-75

Temporary lane and ramp closures on I-75 and U.S. 35 may be possible throughout the construction project.

We make every effort to ensure our directions are up-to-date and accurate, but unexpected route changes may occur due to the nature of this construction. If you encounter a problem with our directions, please call 937-223-5277 or e-mail info@daytonart.org with details so we can make appropriate changes.
