Thanks for this heads up from Lobbyist Jeannine for this upcoming meeting.

ODOT to host Public Meeting to discuss U.S. 322 (Mayfield Road) and Auburn Road improvements in Munson Twp.

GARFIELD HEIGHTS (Wednesday, August 1, 2018) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has completed a preliminary study for the improvements at the intersection of U.S. 322 (Mayfield Road) and Auburn Road in Munson Township. This intersection is ranked #19 in ODOT’s 2015 listings of rural intersections with higher than predicated crash frequency locations and #5 for rural intersections in Geauga County.

The project will improve safety by constructing an exclusive left turn lane on all approaches and improve the signal head visibility.   The potential improvements may require right-of-way to be acquired, 1.4 acres of tree removal and could affect three historic homes. One of which is on the National Register of Historic Places.    The proposed intersection improvements will be presented at an upcoming Public Meeting.

Date: Tuesday, August 7, 2017
Time: 6 to 8 p.m. Open House from 6-7 p.m., followed immediately by a presentation
Place: Munson Township Hall, 12210 Auburn Road, Chardon, OH 44024
ODOT and its consultant will present an overview of the preliminary study for the intersection. Questions can be asked about the project before or after the presentation.
