Here is a link to an ODOT site that includes the most resent Press Releases: http://www.dot.state.oh.us/districts/D08/Newsreleases/ From there you can also navigate to other pages that contain maps and more.
ODOT has also developed a way to let the public visualize the big picture behind reconstruction of the Hopple Street interchange. It makes use of the Google Earth software. Once you’ve installed Google Earth, click on the link found at this link to come up with a photo of the route to our slice of Paradise, upon which has been drawn a sketch of the planned alterations to it.
ODOT has more information about the project on a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/#!/ODOTDistrict8 and at a website at
