ODOT seeking public comment on projects

LIMA (Dec. 6, 2017)The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 1, in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Executive Order 11988, is seeking public comments regarding the following proposed projects:
Allen County
State Route 117 (Shawnee Road) Bridge Repair (PID: 98522)
ODOT is proposing to repair the bridge carrying state Route 117 (also known as Shawnee Road) over the railroad at mile marker 13.85 on the west side of the city of Lima. The bridge is located approximately one quarter of a mile north of the Shawnee Road and Spencerville Road intersection. The bridge will be closed during construction and vehicular traffic will be detoured. Access to all nearby properties will be maintained throughout construction.   
Construction for this project is scheduled to occur in the summer of 2020.
Defiance County
County Route 424 Shoulder Widening (PID: 104145)
The Defiance County Engineer, in partnership with ODOT, is proposing to widen the roadway shoulders along county Road 424 between the Clinton Street (state Route 15) bridge and the entrance of Independence Dam State Park. The widened shoulders will accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians in this area.
Work along county Road 424 will occur in the regulated floodplain of the Maumee River. Impacts to this floodplain are anticipated to be minor and result in no rise in localized flood levels. A statement of findings detailing the results of the final floodplain analysis will be made available on the ODOT District 1 environmental website:
http://www.dot.state.oh.us/districts/D01/PlanningPrograms/Pages/environmental.aspx
The roadway is scheduled to remain open throughout construction; therefore, no detours will be necessary. Access to all properties within the construction limits will be maintained. Construction for this project is scheduled to occur in the summer of 2018.
 
Hancock County

Village of McComb, Safe Routes to School (PID: 103696)
ODOT, in partnership with the village of McComb, is proposing to construct sidewalks, improve pedestrian signals, and upgrade school signage along South Todd Street near McComb Local Schools in the village of McComb. This project is included as part of the state of Ohio’s Safe Routes to Schools Program.
Construction for this project is scheduled to occur in the summer of 2020.
State Route 12 Culvert Replacement (PID: 105573)
ODOT is proposing to replace the existing deteriorating culvert at mile marker 20.83 on state Route 12 in Hancock County with a new culvert. The culvert is located between county Road 214 and county Road 248, approximately one mile southwest of the village of Arcadia.
Temporary roadway closure is required during construction and traffic will be detoured.  Access to all properties within the construction limits will be maintained, however.  Construction for this project is scheduled to occur in the spring of 2020.
