ODOT seeking public comment on projects
LIMA (Dec. 19, 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:
Districtwide projects
Bridge Maintenance Project (PID: 96616)
ODOT is proposing the following routine maintenance activities on bridges and culverts in Allen County:
  • Repair work on the bridges over Sugar Creek on U.S. 30 in Allen County at the state Route 115 (North West Street) interchange will require the temporary closure of the U.S. 30 westbound exit ramp and U.S. 30 eastbound entrance ramp. As a result, vehicular traffic will be detoured. Access to all properties will be maintained throughout construction.
  • Repair work at the bridge over Interstate 75 on township Road 224 (Swaney Road) in Allen County will require the temporary roadway closure of Swaney Road (at the bridge only). Access to all properties will be maintained throughout construction.
Temporary closures are only expected at these structures. No other roadway closures will occur as a result of this project.
Work on several of the structures related to this project will occur in regulated floodplains. Impacts to these floodplains 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:
Construction for this project is scheduled to occur in the spring of 2018.

State Routes 66, 189, 190 and 697 resurfacing (PID: 87210)
ODOT is proposing to resurface portions of the roadway on state Route 66, state Route 190 and state Route 697 in Allen County; state Route 66 and state Route 189 in Putnam County; and state Route 66 and state Route 697 in Van Wert County. Work within the city of Delphos and village of Ottoville may include upgrading curb ramps.
Repair work on the state Route 66 bridge over U.S. 30 in Van Wert County will result in temporary roadway closure; vehicular traffic will be detoured. Access to all properties will be maintained throughout construction.
Construction is scheduled to occur in the summer of 2018.
