The Rittman SRTS project to construct Home Street sidewalks, add path lighting, improve crosswalks and install speed feedback signs has been approved for funding. Unfortunately we are unable to fund the portable speed trailer and solar flashing stop signs at this time. We ask the community to implement education and encouragement programs during project development.


Environmental $33,000
Design -0-
R/W -0-
Construction $329,000
Construction Engineering -0
Total: $362,000



Application includes all required attachments.

Recommend following improvements:

1,) Lighting for path - 33,128

2.) Sidewalks in Home Street neighborhood  285,875

4.) Crosswalk markings - however not sure about the crosswalk "mats" they are recommending.  Will need more detail on this item. 11,420

5.) Solar Flashing 20mph school zone signs (include radar speed feedback signs instead of portable unit mentioned below). 24,800 + 6,000 for upgrading to speed feedback


DO NOT RECOMMEND the following:

3.) Portable Speed Trailer - recommend speed feedback signs with school zone signs instead so we know they are being used for the school zone and not somewhere else in the city.

6.) Solar LED flashing Stop signs - this has nothing to do with SRTS and the intersection they want to use them at is a 4-way stop and does not have a running the stop sign pattern.  They mention in their STP the existing stop signs are faded and need replaced.  This is a maintenance issue for the City - should not use SRTS funds for this.

362,000 for Home Street sidewalks, path lighting, crosswalk markings and speed feedback signs. Unfortunately your request for a portable speed trailer and solar flashing stop signs will not be funded with SRTS funds.

The Wapakoneta SRTS project has been selected for funding. We offer to fund construction only for sidewalks and links around the schools in Wapakoneta as described in the application with the exceptions of adding the Gardenia Ave. and Warren Ave. and removing the locations on Poppy Drive and Laurel Drive.


Construction $475,000





New Estimate: $473,708


  1. While reviewing this application it was noticed that there are two gaps in the sidewalk network that should be addressed in this project:
    1. Gardenia Avenue from the Wapakoneta School Administration Building to Poppy Drive. 
    2. Warren Avenue from a point just north of Poppy Drive to Poppy Drive.
  2. Given that this project is already close to the maximum funding cap, the district recommends removing the following sidewalk segments so that the aforementioned sidewalk gaps can be funded:
    1. Poppy Drive from Stoneybrook Road to Warren Avenue.
    2. Laurel Drive from Poppy Drive to Carnation Drive (If Needed).
  3. The district recommends this project with consideration to the revisions requested.

Randy Comisford:  The sidewalks in the area are past their useful life and will need replaced.  It is a very residential neighborhood.  Aaron believes there is enough rw there records show that the existing sidewalk is in the existing rw.  I would recommend funding for the entire project.   The city will be making quite a funding commitment also.

The district feels that this would be a very worthwhile and beneficial project to aid in students travelling through the downtown area. I do think, however, that the estimate seems high for the type of work to be completed (especially for the controller timing and maintenance of traffic). The district recommends funding as the project would be very beneficial however, I will ask that the cost estimate be reviewed again. I will have further details during the April 11 conference call. I would also like to note that this will be the Village of Versailles third SRTS project and they have done an incredible job completing their first project with second project running very smoothly so far.

The Plain City SRTS project to install sidewalks on West Ave. has not been selected for funding. According to the student location map provided, fewer than 5% of students attending the school would benefit from the proposal.



JW Does this project affect enough students?

Mike will research percent of students affected. we suspect not many.


MM - I do not recommend this sidewalk project. 323k for a sidewalk stretch of 0.3 miles that doesn’t affect many students. The students it does affect are nearly 1.5 miles away.

Unfunded: We are unable to fund this project at this time. The application did not address the hazards for students crossing SR 310.


There are several obstacles within the project.  It does not appear that it can be constructed within the existing rw, utility concerns, bridge, drive issues, cross SR310 at unsignalized intersection.  Project services very residential area (apartments and homes)

From John Motl to Village 4-16-12:

Ross, it’s been awhile since we spoke.  I’m the District 12 Safe Routes to School Coordinator, and I’ve been involved in  the review of the new applications for SRTS funding.  While reviewing the East Cleveland application with ODOT Central Office, the question was raised of the City’s ability to maintain new infrastructure especially in light of the City’s “Fiscal Watch” status.  This is particularly true of the proposed new pedestrian lighting along Superior Road.  What assurance can the City offer to demonstrate that the lights will be maintained once installed – dedicated lighting fund, dedicated lighting maintenance crew, lighting maintenance agreement with First Energy, etc.?  Please respond at your earliest convenience as the deadline for project awards is April 30.
The City of East Cleveland is unique in that, it has owned, operated and maintained its' own street light system for almost a century. 
We have and continue to have a relationship with the Illuminating Company, supplying electrical power to our street light poles and HPS luminaires, with East Cleveland responsible for the maintenance, repair and replacement of the same. 
Our electrical department over the years has downsized from five employees to currently two, however we quite often move two employees from the Service Division to the Electrical Division to assist when additional manpower is needed for traffic control and especially during light pole installations. 
Our Electrical Division also maintains all of the City's fifty (50) traffic signalized intersections. 
Given the above, please be assured that the City of East Cleveland will maintain, repair and replace street lighting poles, luminaires and appurtenances installed upon Superior Road, as part of our Safe Routes to School grant application program. 
Please advise if you have any additonal questions or comments and/or need this information placed upon our city letterhead

4-10-12:Recommend but stress that community must do some education and encouragement while project is in development,.

The Liberty Township SRTS project to provide pedestrian facilities and pedestrian signals has been approved for funding. Specific locations may be modified from application during the project scoping process. We ask the community to develop education and encouragement programs during project development.

490,000: Add sidewalks on SR 304 and construct pedestrian signal at a location to be determined during scoping. Liberty must work on education and encouragement during project development. Specific project locations may be modified during the scoping process.

I asked the age of the Lowellville sidewalks proposed for replacement, and was told that they date back to the 1950s… the SRTS application didn’t cite specific street locations or distinctly identify the spots on mapping.  I think we would see exact locations at scoping meeting.   We can finalize locations in the field at the scoping meeting?  We do that all the time.  If we find that the area in question is neglected instead of old, we can determine that location won’t be addressed under this project…

Application is complete and includes all requirements.  Proposed sidewalk sections make connections and provide ped facilities where none currently exisit in vicinity of Liberty Twp schools campus.   Limits might be questionable- to Joann, which is not densely residential, and seems to terminate at commercial facilities.  Establishing termini can be finalized at scoping project.  2 ped signals are proposed-one is identified at a park entrance.  Park entrance for delivering students to schools?  However, park is across the street from a neighborhood... ​   Also note that the proposed ped signal locations  in application ARE NOT locations identified in SRTS Action Plan.  Does this disqualify those improvements even though the proposed ped signal would provide safe crossing for students at a busier facility than the one identified in action plan?    Recommendation for at least sidewalk locations if we partially fund this.  


JW - concern that they have done nothing for non infrastrucuture, recomend education and encouragement during project developemnt.

4-12-12- Look at location of signal near park otherwise recommend.


CS -

Well, I think there might be better locations along that stretch for crossing students.   Right off the bat, Summit St. is more reasonable, but at time of scoping we can look more closely at an alternate location that makes the most sense…There’s 3 or 4 unsignalized streets right in a row there.  Why the park?
To MM.
According to Chris Surma Ped signal would only affect about 12 students, can you take a second look and let me know what you think?
Is this the only school in the vicinity?

A portion of the Gahanna SRTS project has been selected for funding. ODOT would like to fund the Jefferson path and Laura Heil extension as well as the Cherrybottom and East Johnstown portion of the request. Unfortunately we are unable to fund the Shull Road portion since it would benefit only a small percentage of students who would then have a 2 mile commute to school.

Gahanna: MM is looking into student count for Johnstown Road Cherrybottom portion, Waiting to hear back from City regarding Shull to Morse portion.


District 6 recommends this application for approval.​

JW lets take a look at the overall student location map

Shull Road portion will not affect a large number of students.

Johnstown Cherrybottom did not compare favorably and Laurel Heil is good to go. &70,000
