This esisode of WHIO Reports focuses on highway construction around the Dayton area, especially the main projects such as the I-75 project and the I-70/I-75 project.
The guests discuss how the construction projects are affecting the local economy now and when the projects will be finished. The guests acknowledge that they understand that drivers are getting frustrated and focus on the end result to make driving so much easier. They discuss when the projects began and when they plan to finish the new roadways, as well as the cost which is around $700 million.
The construction is needed because the traffice has increased quite a bit since the two freeways were built back in the 1960s. Toward the end of the show the guests reassure drives that before they know it the construction will be over and to bare with crews in order to make the freeways safer and to ease the drive.
