Ottawa County to spend $70K improving highway safety

OTTAWA COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Ottawa County will be spending about $70,000 this summer to improve the safety of its highways.

Ottawa County has had information about its road conditions for 15 years. Now it is expanding that research and making sure its road speed limits and safety improvements fall in line with government standards.

This survey project will cost approximately $70,000. The project will make sure highway signs are  located in the right places and conditions of the roads are up to par. There is also a no-passing zone and curve-safe speed study being conducted, in order to make the highways safe countywide.

"It's a matter of keeping the roads as safe as possible, making sure that there's proper signage, and also, how the tipping of the road and so forth is, so we know what's going on and we can improve it," said David Brunkhorst, county engineer.

After the surveying is complete, improvements will start this summer. The project will make safety improvements to Ottawa County highways only.
