Two projects proposed by the City of Ontario will have an impact on two intersections traveled by many thousands of motorists each day.

First. the City is proposing to install pedestrian crossing markings, signals, and physical improvements at the SR 309 and Lexington-Springmill Road Intersection (Google Maps view below). This construction will be funded by the Ohio Department of Transportation.

All work will be completed within existing right-of-way. Construction is expected to be complete by Fall 2018.

Written comment concerning the proposed project may be mailed to Jeffrey Wilson, Service Safety Director, 555 Stumbo Road, Ontario, Ohio 44906, or by e-mail at [email protected]. Any comments must be received by Tuesday, March 13.

Second, the City is also proposing a safety improvement project at the SR 309 off ramps at W. 4th Street. This project involves removing the right turn slip ramps and install traditional right turn lanes. This construction will be funded with a 90% grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT).

As with the pedestrian crossing project, all work will be completed within existing right of way, with construction anticipated to begin in the Fall of 2018.

Written comment concerning this proposed project may also be mailed to Jeffrey Wilson, Service Safety Director, and must be received by Thursday, March 15.
