Roundabouts planned at Dutch Rd. and Waterville-Monclova

Waterville, OH -

The Lucas County Commissioners have given the green light for the engineer's office to move ahead with right-of-way acquisition and construction plans for the roundabouts project at Dutch Road and Waterville-Monclova Road.

The $1.7 million project involves using mainly federal transportation funds to build two new modern roundabouts at both intersections.

Even though traffic studies show traffic there has decreased due to the US-24 project, traffic is expected to increase in that area in the near future.

"With the development we expect to occur near the new interchange and other areas close to this roundabout, we expect that to get back to the old numbers very quickly and probably exceed that," said Lucas County Engineer Keith Earley.

Earley said traffic safety will also improve by reducing the chances for high-speed, side-impact crashes.

Traffic closures are scheduled between June and August of 2014, to minimize the transportation disruptions for Anthony Wayne Schools.
