Here's the I-75 update in Findlay next week

The following lane changes are planned next week on Interstate 75 as it passes around Findlay.

Interstate 75 northbound between the county Road 313 overpass and U.S. 68/state Route 15 will be shifted into a contraflow pattern overnight Tuesday, July 23, into the early morning hours of Wednesday, July 24.

When the shift is complete, two 11-foot lanes of northbound traffic will travel on the southbound side of highway in that area, next to the two lanes of southbound traffic, to allow construction activities to begin on the northbound side of the highway.

Hot enough for you?

You've heard the "It's hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk."

The Bluffton Family Recreation staff (Jamie Nygaard's idea) tests that statement today. An egg reflects in the sun at BFR as we speak.

Jamie promises a photo of herself eating the egg if (when) it reaches the proper temperature.

Stay tuned.
