Public Information Meeting on SR 123/63 Connector Set
Wednesday, Oct. 27 at Lebanon City Hall
The City of Lebanon, in conjunction with the Ohio Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration, will conduct a public information meeting concerning the proposed State Route 123/63 connector roadway Wednesday, Oct. 27 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Lebanon City Hall, 50 S. Broadway.
The City is planning a project that will construct a connector roadway from SR 123 (Franklin Road) at the intersection of Hart Road east to SR 63 (Main Street) at the intersection of Glosser Road. The roadway will be posted with a 35 mph speed limit and have one lane in each direction with a center turn lane. Most of the work conducted for this project will occur on new right-of-way. The project aims to reduce congestion along existing SR 123 (Franklin Road & West Silver Street) through town and improve safety through this corridor. As part of this project, ODOT is anticipating abandoning a portion of existing SR 123 through town and re-routing it onto the new connector roadway.
The purpose of this meeting is to afford all interested persons an opportunity to review and comment on the planned project. The meeting will be held in an “open house” format, with Project Team representatives available to take comments and answer questions. The open house style format affords attendees the opportunity to attend the meeting at their convenience between the hours of 4 and 7 p.m., review the meeting displays illustrating the project, and discuss the project individually with Project Team representatives. There will not be any formal speaker presentation at this meeting.
Public input is a very important part of the project development process. Comments may be made at the meeting or up to 14 days subsequent to the meeting either by mail or email.
