2 Jun , 2022  

By 1812Blockhouse

A long-planned feature for RIchland County roadways will be here soon, now that construction has begun on the new Illinois Avenue/Cook Road/Mansfield-Lucas Road roundabout.

First publicly announced in 2019, the new roundabout, just southeast of Mansfield City Cemetery, was designed to provide increased safety over the present configuration. A study released at the time showed that 15 crashes had taken place there in the 2012 to 2015 time period, with another 13 crashes occurring in 2016 and 2017.

A fact sheet from the public meeting on the proposal can be found here, and a video introduction is below.

US30 Rehabilitation Update

19 Oct , 2021  

By 1812Blockhouse

Work on the massive US30 Rehabilitation Project north of Mansfield continues apace. 

The project will address deteriorating pavements and poor bridge conditions on U.S. 30, and it will improve outdated design features to reduce the number and severity of crashes on U.S. 30 and its interchanges.

U.S. 30 was originally constructed beginning in 1956. The road was most recently repaved in 2010 with pavement repairs in 2017, but the concrete base underneath the asphalt has deteriorated and requires ongoing repairs. The original bridges remaining in this section are also nearing the end of their lifespan.

ODOT Proposing Bridge Replacement Project

8 Feb , 2021  

Special to 1812Blockhouse

ODOT is proposing a bridge replacement project on State Route 603 at the 13.57 mile-marker in Richland County.

The existing bridge is a single span concrete box beam that was built in 1986. The proposed structure is a concrete box beam bridge with reinforced abutments and wingwalls supported by drilled shafts, built on existing alignment.

The project will impact Shipp Creek in order to complete the bridge replacement. Suitable wooded habitat for listed bat species will be removed for this project. To avoid impacts to listed bat species during summer roosting, all trees will be removed between Oct. 1 and March 31. More…

ODOT Seeks Comments On Culvert Project

4 Dec , 2020  

The Ohio Department of Transportation is planning a culvert replacement project located along SR98 approximately 1200-feet south of Baker Road in Richland County.  The structurally deficient slab top culvert and wing walls will be replaced with a new concrete box or concrete elliptical culvert and full height wing walls.

The project will require permanent right-of-way to remove and reinstall the culvert.  Deep excavation will be required for the proposed work. However, no utilities will need to be relocated to construct this project.  In accordance with the ODOT Office of Environmental Services’ (OES) Regulated Materials Review (RMR) guidelines, an RMR Screening was conducted.  The current land use of the properties adjacent to this project are considered residential and agricultural.
