Project to Upgrade Ohio 309 Awarded
LIMA (Friday, January 21, 2011) – The contract for a project which will improve driver safety on Ohio 309 on Lima’s west side has been awarded to S E T Inc. of Lowellville.
The low bid on the project was $7.1 million. Bids for the project were announced Thursday at the Ohio Department of Transportation’s central office in Columbus.
The contract for the project was officially awarded to S E T following a review of the bidding documents which was completed yesterday.
The project on Ohio 309 will take place from Eastown Road to Robb Avenue and includes the installation of a raised curb concrete median to control left-turn movements, the addition of U-turns at specified locations, and the consolidation or elimination of driveways to reduce traffic conflict points.
“We’re looking forward to getting this project under way and to seeing the vast improvement in safety which will result for this area of Ohio 309,” said Kirk Slusher, Ohio Department of Transportation District 1 deputy director.
The project is identified on ODOT’s highway safety program listing as being a location where safety concerns and congestion must be addressed, he said.
A public meeting will be held prior to the start of construction to share with the public how traffic will be maintained throughout the project.
