US42-Stylized.jpgMedina US Route 42 Widening Project

US 42 in the City of Medina and Medina Township, from just south of Harding Street to just south of Fenn Road, will be widened with access management strategies implemented along the corridor. The project will improve safety and access along the corridor that will ultimately improve the flow of traffic and provide lane continuity through the corridor.

The project includes the following improvements:
  • Roadway reconstruction and widening to provide two thru lanes in each direction and left turn lanes at the side road intersections
  • A raised median within the City of Medina and a center two-way left turn lane in Medina Township
  • 10 foot wide multi-use use path (west side) and 5 foot wide walk (east side)
  • New roadway lighting within the raised median
  • Addition of curb and gutter with new storm sewers
  • New water main within the City of Medina
  • New concrete driveway aprons
  • New traffic signals at eight intersections
  • Management of access points along U.S. Route 42 corridor
