US 20 Safety Improvements in Perrysburg Township
ODOT, Perrysburg Township and private partnership
BOWLING GREEN (Dec. 3, 2018) - A new safety improvement has changed US 20 at Oakmead Drive in Perrysburg Township.
In conjunction with Perrysburg Township and a private developer, a permanent concrete barrier has been installed to prevent the left turns and through traffic from northbound and southbound Oakmead Drive to US 20. Left turns are still permitted from eastbound and westbound US 20 to Oakmead Drive, thanks to the protection of the designated left turn lanes.
Miller Road, which runs parallel with US 20 from Carronade Drive to Oakmead Drive, is being extended to Simmons Road. It will tie-in with the current collector road that leads to Thompson Road.
These measures improve safety for the businesses and residences at this intersection that has long been a concern by officials.
