LUC-SR-2-21.24, PID 96295
The Navarre Avenue Safety Improvement Project involves implementing various safety and aesthetic improvements along Navarre Avenue between I-280 and Isaac Streets Drive to reduce crashes and improve safety. The City has received grant funding from the Federal Highway Administration through the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) for the project. Construction on the project is scheduled to start in March, 2017.
The project will include the construction of a median along Navarre Avenue with bulb out and median openings to accommodate U-turns and emergency access. The project will include a public access road between Wheeling Street and Navarre Avenue, located northeast of the intersection, with right-in and right-out access to Navarre Avenue (SR 2) to serve businesses and provide emergency vehicles access accordingly. The project will also involve upgrading traffic signals, the addition of a second left turn lane for southbound Wheeling Street, resurfacing to improve pavement skid resistance, waterline replacement and other related work. Work on the project is expected to be completed by the end of November, 2017.
Prior to the roadway construction, utility contractors will begin working within the city’s right-of-way along Navarre Avenue and Wheeling Street to install conduits to bury existing overhead utilities that cross the roadway. This work began in early February 2017.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the overall project, please feel free to contact the Department of Public Service at (419) 698-7047 to discuss further.
