The Richland County Engineer’s Office, in collaboration with the Ohio Department of Transportation District 3, has announced plans to construct a roundabout at the intersection of Lexington-Springmill Rd and Home Rd in Troy Township. This project aims to improve traffic flow and safety at this busy junction.

Construction Timeline and Impact

  • Start Date: Spring 2026
  • Duration: Approximately 150 days
  • Detour Period: 90 days during summer

The construction is set to begin in the spring of 2026 and is expected to last about 150 days. A significant portion of the construction will necessitate a detour, which will be in effect for approximately 90 days during the summer months. This detour is essential to ensure the safety of both the construction workers and the public while minimizing disruption.
