Ohio 18 section to close in Defiance for 2 months

Ohio 18 in Defiance, just east of the intersection with Ohio 15/18, will close Monday for about two months for culvert replacement, the Ohio Department of Transportation said today.

Two detours will be established for the closure, the transportation department said in a statement.

It said traffic will be detoured onto Ohio 281 and U.S. 24 back to Ohio 15/18, or to Ohio 66, U.S. 24 and Ohio 281 back to Ohio 18.
