Massillon Road North

The City of Green has engaged the engineering firm of Burgess & Niple to identify ways to improve the Massillon Road corridor north of the I-77 interchange to just north of the E. Turkeyfoot Lake Road (SR 619) intersection. 

Purpose

To improve current and future mobility on Massillon Road.

Project Needs

  • Capacity - Existing two-lane road not adequate for future traffic at intersections.
  • Safety - Number of left turn crashes at intersections higher than statewide averages, vertical curve does not provide adequate sight distance, insufficient driveway spacing, shoulders are narrower than current design standards.
  • Walking/Biking - No existing pedestrian or bicycle facilities along Massillon Road.

Project Goals

  • Provide sufficient capacity to accommodate future traffic.
  • Decrease crashes by improving roadway to current design standards.
  • Accommodate pedestrians and bicycles and improve connectivity.
  • Minimize impacts to private property and the environment.
  • Improve visual character of corridor.

Project Plan

After several public input meetings and evaluation of the three proposed plan alternatives, the selected project plan includes two roundabouts (intersection of Massillon Road/SR619 and intersection of Stein and Massillon Road) and a signalized intersection at Raber and Massillon Road.  See proposed plan.

Project Cost Estimates

$10 million which includes construction, right-of-way acquisition and utility relocation costs.

Project Funding

ODOT Safety Funding, AMATS, City of Green.

Estimated Schedule

  • Develop alternatives - Fall 2013
  • Public Meeting No. 2 - Late 2013/Early 2014
  • Select preferred alternative - Early 2014
  • Design - 2014-2015
  • Right of Way Acquisition and utility relocation - 2016
  • Construction - 2017-2018
