Roadway Safety Projects

Jurisdictions in ODOT District 2 (eight northwest Ohio counties) that have identified unsafe roadway sections or intersections can apply twice a year to the Highway Safety Improvement Program for funding. For the round of applications completed in September 2018, ODOT District 2 applied for 10 projects (more than they ever applied for before). Six were approved, two are pending more review, and two were determined not to be safety issues and were referred for other sources of funding.

Approved projects:

Napoleon Road at Campbell Hill Road (Center Township, Wood County). This project had the highest score in the state. Construction of a single lane roundabout. FY 2023 construction.
SR 2/Navarre Avenue at Coy Road (City of Oregon). Improvements to traffic signals at the intersection and removing or relocating some driveways to reduce rear end collisions. FY 2021 construction.
Monroe Street at Harroun Road (City of Sylvania). Several changes involving driveways to Toledo Memorial Park, upgraded pedestrian traffic signals and pavement markings at the crosswalks, improved and larger signage, and upgraded signal clearances with accommodations for emergency vehicles for nearby Flower Hospital. FY 2022 construction.
SR 295 at Neapolis-Waterville Road (Providence Township, Lucas County). The project request is for a single lane roundabout. FY 2022 construction.
SR 107 (Village of Montpelier, Williams County). Request for a multi-use path. FY 2019 construction.
SR 163 at North Shore Road/Englebeck Road (Danbury Township, Ottawa County). Request for a single lane roundabout. FY 2022 construction.

Pending projects. These might be approved after further review.
