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.
To improve current and future mobility on Massillon Road.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
