US 24 Project Public Meeting

Thursday, June 4, 2009, 7pm

Anthony Wayne High School Auditorium – 5967 Finzel Road, Whitehouse, Ohio

Representatives from ODOT will be present to explain the project and answer questions. A formal presentation will be delivered at the beginning of the meeting.

U.S. Route 24 is a critical shipping route in Northwest Ohio, with trucks representing over one-third of the overall traffic. Once complete, this expansion will alleviate existing safety concerns with truck and residential traffic along the current two-lane, rural highway.  It is also expected to spark additional economic development throughout the region.  Interested citizens, public officials, local businesses and special interest groups are invited to attend this meeting to receive a description of the project and a preview of the construction schedule.
