The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is officially making it every driver's favorite time of year by kicking off construction season Wednesday.

The state is working on nearly a thousand projects totaling an estimated $2.3 billion.

Camp Washington Business Association Executive Director Joe Gorman says his community is excited about plans to upgrade the Hopple Street - I-75 interchange.

The Ohio Department of Transportation is planning a major renovation for the Lytle Tunnel.  Some of the work will begin later this year.

The project includes sealing tunnel joints, replacing tiling, and upgrading obsolete lighting and electric systems.

A second phase of the project consists of replacing and expanding the tunnel’s ventilation system.  That will require modifications to Lytle Park above the tunnel.

City Transportation and Engineering Director Michael Moore updated Council's Budget and Finance Committee Monday about the project.
