In early August 2013, the Ohio Department of Transportation District 3 announced a major rehabilitation of US Route 30 within the City of Mansfield. The approximately $68 million project is expected to take about two years to complete and begin construction as early as 2016.
The project is currently being designed by Engineering Associates of Wooster. While the details are still being discussed and worked out in the design phase, this project is expected to remove and replace the pavement between State Route 309 to Fifth Avenue as well as improve the safety at the interchanges along the corridor.
In addition to safety improvements on US 30, such as wider shoulders, alternatives under consideration include modifications to the interchanges at SR 39, SR 13, SR 545 and Fifth Avenue. The public’s input will assist ODOT in determining which alternatives to carry forward. The project will be funded by state and federal transportation funds administered by ODOT, with construction tentatively planned to start in 2016.
ODOT encourages the public to provide their input as it pertains to the proposed designs of the US Route 30 corridor. Public participation is vital to developing and building a transportation facility that will effectively serve the community now and for years to come.
