TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

It's been in the planning stages for years to divert traffic underneath the Norfolk Southern lines along McCord Road, and the Lucas County Engineer's office wants to make sure property acquisition doesn't hold up the project.

Engineer Keith Earley says negotiations are on-going with five property owners and purchase agreements may soon be finalized, but the Lucas County Commissioners have given the prosecutor's office the go-ahead to file court proceedings if necessary to acquire the necessary property for the McCord Road underpass project.

"Those that we have not reached an agreement with, the time frame is running out," Earley said. "We need to file appropriations to start the time clock so that we can occupy those properties within a year. They've been appraised, ODOT's reviewed it, so they've been appraised and scrutinized."

Earley also said the target is starting construction work in the Spring of 2014. The goal is to save people time and gas by eliminating idle time at the crossing and making it safer for pedestrians to get from one side of the tracks to the other.
