The City of Green will begin construction of the two season Massillon Road North infrastructure improvement project in 2020. Utility relocation will begin in 2019 in preparation for the roadway improvements.

Purpose

The purpose of this project is to improve current and future mobility on Massillon Road.

Project Needs

Review the following project needs:

  • Capacity: Existing two-lane road is not adequate for future traffic at intersections
  • Safety: Number of left turn crashes at intersections is 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 this segment of  Massillon Road

Project Goals

See the following to learn about the project goals:

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

Project Plan

After several public input meetings and evaluation of the three proposed plan alternatives, the selected project plan includes three roundabouts (intersections of Massillon Road/SR619, Stein/Massillon Road, and Raber/Massillon Road).
