Sewers, water mains and utility installation continues through through the winter months. Read on...
This is a week later than originally planned, but after discussions with our contractor we felt that the remaining work that needs completed this year would be easier, safer and less disruptive to the travelling public if Raber remains closed. Read on...
On October 5, Raber Road to close for 45 days. Traffic patterns to change on Massillon Road. Read on...
- If we're looking to access Interstate 77, should we take an alternate route?
- Why are we putting new utility poles up instead of placing those wires and cables underground?
- The roundabouts at Raber and 619 are at busy intersections. Why are we adding a third one at Stein Road?
- How long will the project take?
- Why is the project necessary?
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 roadway improvements.
The purpose of this project is to improve current and future mobility on Massillon Road.
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
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
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).
