Details of Ohio 309 Safety Upgrade Project to be Shared
LIMA (Tuesday, March 08, 2011) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) will hold a public meeting to discuss the upcoming safety upgrade project on Ohio 309 on the west side of Lima.
Construction will begin this spring and will continue through the fall.
The meeting will be held Thursday, March 10, beginning at 6 p.m. at Elida Middle School, 4500 Sunnydale Avenue, Elida.
ODOT officials and representatives from its contractor on the project, S E T Inc. of Lowellville, will discuss details of construction and how traffic will be maintained during the project which will take place from Eastown Road to Robb Avenue.
The project’s purpose is to improve the safety of the Ohio 309 corridor by widening the roadway to provide 12-foot travel lanes; eliminating, consolidating or relocating drives especially at high-volume locations; constructing a six-inch high, raised-curb median down the center of the roadway; and providing U-turn movements at selected intersections.
“We intend to communicate regularly with the public throughout this project so those impacted the most can know what to expect,” said Kirk Slusher, ODOT District 1 deputy director. “We encourage everyone to attend this project kick-off meeting so we can establish good communication from the start,” he said.
Project updates will be provided regularly at the following link: http://www.transportation.ohio.gov/districts/d01/sr309
