​Lorain US 20 Major Rehabilitation

ODOT and the City of North Ridgeville, are working together on the major rehabilitation of US 20. The 2.32 mile project, that stretches from Stoney Ridge Road to Lear Nagle Road, will begin in 2018.

  • Roadway reconstruction and widening from 3 lanes to 5 lanes
  • Constructing a new 10ft shared-use path
  • New storm sewers and water lines 
  • New sidewalks with new curb and gutter throughout the project
  • Upgrading the traffic signals and signage along the corridor
  • Two bridge replacements: US 20 over French Creek and Root Road over French Creek
  • Adding detention basins for storm water control

The 2018 season will include work east of Jaycox Road with the exception of the structure on US 20 over French Creek. The Jaycox Road intersection, the shared-use path, and all side roads east of Jaycox Road, will be completed. 

 

The 2019 season will include work west of Jaycox Road. This will include the intersections of Stoney Ridge Road, State Route 83, and Root Road. Each of these intersections will have their own phasing due to the size and complexity of the intersections. 

All work on the east end of the project, with the exception of the structure over French Creek, will be completed before work begins on the west end.​ US 20 will have at least one lane of traffic maintained in each direction at all times. The current 35 mph speed limit will remain in effect during the project. Business access will be maintained throughout the project.

 Traffic Impacts

 
US Route 20 ***UPDATE***
US 20, between Stoney Ridge Rd. and Lear Nagle Rd., will have one lane of traffic maintained in each direction. Lear Nagle Rd. will have one lane northbound and one lane southbound maintained at all times. Crews continue grading and prepping for concrete and asphalt pavement work east of Lear Nagle Rd. Construction on the French Creek Bridge will begin and the traffic pattern has already been marked and should have little to no effect on traffic. Lanes widths will be reduced to 10’. Be advised that the dedicated left turn lanes on Lear Nagle to US 20 will be eliminated, and the signal timing will be changed to accommodate the loss of those turn lanes. To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing by the work zone. The project is expected to be complete October 2019; however, all work is weather dependent.
