From Collingwood Boulevard to I-475, the orange barrels are out and crews are hard at work. A sure sign it's construction season in Northwest Ohio.
"Well it's just extreme madness and chaos," David Culver, a Toledo driver said.
Right now, the Ohio Department of Transportation is working on several major projects. One of the biggest is the I-475/75 interchange.
The City of Toledo is also taking on some hefty work. The Secor Road reconstruction, the Collingwood Boulevard overhaul, and the Alexis road overpass, just to name a few.
"It's a mess, it really is," Marian Culver, a driver to 13abc.
Some drivers we spoke with say they've started to take alternative routes, but it seems others are doing the same. In the end, the construction free zones become clogged.
"Seems like there's always a problem everywhere you go," Trey Hampton, driver, said.
ODOT and the city are putting millions of dollars into area highways and byways. There are many drivers looking forward to the finished product.
But for some the road to completion is both bumpy and frustrating.
"I do realize the time for them to work on these things is when the weather is accommodating," Culver said. "I understand that, but it seems like it's just chaos."
Another big project is set to start Tuesday on Talmadge. Both directions will be closed between Bonniebrook Rd and Brookside Rd in Ottawa Hills until late July.
