Right-of-way required for roundabout construction
The Ohio Department of Transportation is working with the Villages of Malta and McConnelsville in Morgan County to make intersection improvements along State Routes 37, 60, 78 and 669. Roundabouts are proposed for the intersections at State Routes 60 and 37/78 in McConnelsville and State Routes 669 and 37/78 in Malta. The project also includes a concrete deck overlay on the bridge over the Muskingum River that connects Malta and McConnelsville in addition to the construction of sidewalks. Construction is expected to begin in Spring 2017.
The proposed Malta Village roundabout is adjacent to the Chet Goins Little League Field. Facilities at this location include a baseball field, playground, picnic shelter and monuments. Approximately 0.14 acre of permanent right-of-way will be required from the Chet Goins Little League Field in order to construct a portion of the roundabout. Construction will require playground equipment (swing set, riding toys, and monuments) to be moved to another location in the park as specified by the mayor.
The Chet Goins Little League Field is a publicly owned recreational resource under Section 4(f) the Department of Transportation (DOT) Act of 1966, and is provided protection from adverse impacts due to federal-aid transportation projects. ODOT and the Village of Malta will implement the following measures to minimize harm to the Chet Goins Little League Field.
Access to Chet Goins Little League Field will be maintained at all times during construction activities via flagging operations and/or approved detour.
Temporary construction fencing will be installed along the proposed construction limits prior to the start of construction activities to protect the existing 4(f) property and the public.
Except as necessary to facilitate construction activities, the staging and/or storage of construction equipment will not take place outside proposed construction limits that are within the defined boundaries of the 4(f) property.
The contractor will be required to closely coordinate the construction schedule with ODOT and the Village of Malta and Mayor Greg Hill.
The playground equipment (swing set, riding toys, and monuments) will be moved to a location of the Chet Goins Little League Field as specified by the mayor southwest of the baseball field. Relocation of the playground equipment and monuments will be made part of the construction plans.
The Ohio Department of Transportation has coordinated the project’s involvement with the Chet Goins Little League Field with the Mayor of Malta, Greg Hill and has received concurrence that the project will not adversely affect the recreational activities, features, or attributes associated with the Chet Goins Little League Field. The proposed project is considered to have a de minimis impact on the Chet Goins Little League Field.
Due to permanent right-of-way required from the Chet Goins Little League Field, the Ohio Department of Transportation is seeking public input regarding these effects on the property. Please provide comments to the Ohio Department of Transportation, District Environmental Coordinator, Rachel Goodpaster by mail at 338 Muskingum Drive, Marietta, Ohio 45750, or by phone 740.568.4391 or by email
. Comments must be received by November 2, 2017.
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.
