LIMA — The Ohio Department of Transportation has chosen a single-lane roundabout design to improve safety at the intersection of U.S. 127 and U.S. 224 at Marsh Road in Van Wert County.
This option was the recommended alternative presented at a public meeting in November to improve intersection safety.
The decision was made after ODOT and its consultant, Fishbeck, Inc., Columbus, gathered feedback on the alternative during stakeholder meetings and a public meeting. The project scheduled for construction in 2022 will place a single-lane roundabout at the current intersection.
The estimated construction cost of the chosen option is $2.13 million. The project is funded by revenue from the gas user fee increase.
