Central Ohio ODOT Construction To Include Fayette & Pickaway County

Presented By Atomic Speedway

(COLUMBUS) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is officially kicking off the 2021 construction season throughout the state, with more than 145 projects worth $540 million planned in the Central Ohio area this year. This includes 44 pavement improvement projects, 18 bridge projects, and 13 safety upgrades.

Safety remains a top priority in this year’s construction program and despite a 15.5 percent drop in traffic volumes last year, the increased revenue package passed in 2018 has allowed ODOT to continue funding its safety program at a pre-pandemic level and keep important maintenance projects on schedule.

“Thanks to the foresight of Gov. DeWine and the Ohio General Assembly and internal operational savings identified by our workforce, we have been able to weather this global pandemic. Without those extra funds, we would be nearly a billion dollars in the red,” said ODOT Director Jack Marchbanks. “While other states have been delaying or cancelling projects, Ohio continues moving forward.”

This year Central Ohio will continue to see major progress at the Interstate 70/71 split in downtown Columbus, with the new ramp from Fulton St. to I-70 east scheduled to open this summer. Also in Franklin County, work on the South Side Mega Fix will wrap up in June, and I-71 widening work is underway south of State Route 665 to the Pickaway County Line.

East of Columbus, drivers can expect impacts on U.S. Route 40 in Licking County and another year of work to replace the State Route 661 bridge just south of Granville. A multi-year mega reconstruction project on I-70 through Zanesville is also slated to begin this summer.

An increase in orange barrels comes with an urgent plea for drivers to ditch the distractions and follow Ohio’s Move Over law to keep roadside workers safe. Despite fewer vehicles on the road last year, work zone crashes remained high.

“The men and women working to improve our roadways put their lives in your hands every day,” said Marchbanks. “Drivers should always pay attention behind the wheel, but work zones require extra attention and workers’ lives depend on it.”

Last year, ODOT crews were struck 125 times while on the job. So far this year, ODOT crews have already been hit 52 times. Ohio’s Move Over law requires drivers to move over a lane for any roadside vehicle with flashing lights. If they cannot move over, they must slow down.

Other area projects include:

(Fayette County)

PID 110073 I-71 RESURFACING Resurface I-71 from SR 41 in Fayette County to Yankeetown-Chenoweth Rd. in Madison County. Resurface bridges on County Roads 8, 9, 25, and 26. Estimated Begin: April 2021 Estimated End: October 2021 Project Cost: $7 million Traffic Impacts: Temporary lane and ramp closures 

PID 98139 SR 41 CULVERT REPLACEMENTS Replace culverts on SR 41 near Concord Rd. and Klondike Rd. Estimated Begin: June 2021 Estimated End: December 2022 Project Cost: $946,000 Traffic Impacts: 30-day closure with detour for each culvert

(Pickaway County)

PID 106267 CITY OF CIRCLEVILLE RESURFACING Resurface SR 56, SR 188, and U.S. 22 within the city of Circleville corporation limits. Estimated Begin: April 2021 Estimated End: September 2021 Project Cost: $900,000 Traffic Impacts: Daily lane closures, no closures during Circleville Pumpkin Show or Pickaway County Fair

Grass Clippings Can Be Road Hazard For Motorcycle Riders

Presented by McDonald’s, I’m Lovin’ It!

Now that warmer weather has brought lawn mowing back into practice in Ohio, we are being reminded about the possible safety hazard of blowing grass clippings onto streets and roads.

Most motorcycle riders say that like leaves on the roads that create slick road conditions when they become wet, grass clippings can create hazardous or slick conditions on the pavement for riders as well.

While Ohio law does not specifically forbid this practice, there are laws on the books that state “injurious materials” can not be placed on the roadways. The question is, do grass clippings fall within that category?

In a 1952 Ohio Supreme Court ruling concerning “mud” left on roads, the court determined this could not be considered as “injurious material”.

Regardless of whether it does or not, if enough evidence of grass clippings can not stand the legal test for criminal charges in court, it could still leave a person open to being sued in civil court.

Some Ohio cities have passed ordinances banning grass clippings being left on city streets, including the City of Chillicothe, where this language was added to the existing Ordinance #311.01, in 2019.
