Eastern Corridor – SR 32 Road Improvements – Citizen Input Requested
The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) unveiled preliminary plans for road improvements in the Village. The preliminary plans are posted on the Village website and envision (i) a dual southbound left turn lane at the Round Bottom and Main (SR 32) intersection and two east bound lanes to Little Dry Run Road, (ii) a right turn lane onto Little Dry Run Road and intersection improvements, and (iii) a widening of SR 32 from Little Dry Run Road to the eastern edge of the Village for a center turn lane, and (iv) a shared use path for pedestrians and bicycles connecting Little Dry Run to the Village center and the Lake Barber trail. Construction would not commence until 2024 or 2025, and no funds have been secured for the actual road construction at this time. Preliminary plans can be viewed and commented upon at a virtual open house using the link publicinput.com/K5746. This open house will be open for comments between February 14 and March 22, 2021.
