U.S. Route 42 (Pearl Road) Lane Restrictions

MEDINA COUNTY (Friday, March 11, 2016) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) will soon begin the U.S. Route 42 (Pearl Road) intersection improvement project, which includes widening Pearl Road (US 42) for approximately one-half mile through the intersection of Fenn Road, as well as widening one-quarter mile of Fenn Road.

Beginning Monday, March 14, U.S. Route 42 lane widths in both directions will be restricted to 11 feet and left turn lanes will be restricted to 10 feet for striping. Weather permitting, this phase of the project is expected to be completed in late June. Work will continue on the $3.5 million widening and improvement project through October 2016.


Ohio’s highways are essential to keeping and creating new jobs. With a mission to provide easy movement of people and goods from place to place, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is responsible for maintaining one of the largest transportation networks in the nation. Guided by ethical principles and accountability, ODOT works to improve safety, enhance travel and advance economic development. As a $2.8 billion enterprise, the department wisely invests in its core services of snow and ice removal, annual construction program and highway maintenance operations.


The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.
