State Route 25 and Five Point Road in Wood County
BOWLING GREEN (Tuesday, December 22, 2015) –The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District Two announces that effective today, ODOT crews will be working on the installation of the planned temporary traffic signal at the intersection of State Route 25 and Five Point Road in Wood County.
ODOT is coordinating with utilities for electrical power to be provided to the new traffic signal. Once electrical power is provided, the signal will be placed in a flashing operation for a one week period, followed by placement of the signal into normal stop-and-go operation. This work is anticipated to be completed in the next few weeks, weather pending. ODOT will continue to update drivers on the signal status once utility work is complete.
Over the past year, there has been an increase in nearby commercial development, construction traffic and a rise in crashes at this intersection. In August, ODOT performed a traffic study resulting in the signal installation. Findings of this study conclude that a signal is warranted at the intersection based on the parameters set forth in the Ohio Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices.
The design process is underway for a permanent traffic signal, which be installed once funding is secured.
