Ohio’s Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, City of Toledo, Lucas County and other officials have held a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of 1,500 feet of new roadway and utilities at Overland Industrial Park.
Overland Industrial Park is a multi-phase project planned to redevelop the former Jeep Site over the next few years. The master plan for the site features amenities such as improved access from Interstate 75 and Class I railroads, as well as industrial facilities with modern and energy efficient utilities. The Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority acquired the 111-acre property in 2010 for $95,000.
The groundbreaking ceremony celebrated the next phase of redevelopment, which will prepare the site for vertical construction this summer. The new roadway will serve as the main entrance into the site until the Ohio Department of Transportation completes the second phase of the I-75 interchange project. Construction on the roadway and utilities is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2013.
