1812Blockhouse provides regular weekend reports on road project work being conducted under the auspices of the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) in Ashland, Crawford, and Richland Counties.

Such work is, of course, weather dependent. This past week, ODOT District 3 shared announcements of current and upcoming work in the three county area.

U.S. Route 42 & State Route 302 intersection improvement – The U.S. 42 and State Route 302 intersection will be converted from the current two-way stop-controlled intersection into a single lane roundabout.

NEW IMPACTS

  • SR 302 eastbound direction, from U.S. 42 to Township Rd 251/1080 intersection, will close Monday, April 22 to begin construction on the new roundabout. The intersection at U.S. 42 and SR 302 remains open, so motorists are able to travel along U.S. 42 during this phase of construction.
  • Access along SR 302 will be maintained for residents only. All residents and emergency personnel will need to enter the zone from SR 302 westbound.
  • This is phase one of the project and will approximately last from April 2024 till June 2024.
  • The detour route for all other motorists will be SR 302 west to SR 301 north to U.S. 224 west to SR 58 south to SR 302, and reverse.
