Roundabout Work Underway

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The project will address deteriorating pavements and poor bridge conditions on U.S. 30, and it will improve outdated design features to reduce the number and severity of crashes on U.S. 30 and its interchanges.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