ODOT considering roundabout at Perrysburg Twp intersection

PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A dangerous intersection in Perrysburg Township could get a major upgrade soon.

The goal is to make the intersection at State Route 199 and Roachton Road safer for drivers. The project would be sponsored by ODOT, but right now officials say it is still in the study phase.

There is no construction funding yet or an estimate on how much it will cost to install a roundabout at the intersection, but officials say the project would help to reduce conflict points for drivers.

One resident says he's witnessed several accidents from his yard, and he would like to see a change.

"While I've lived here, I've seen at least five or six accidents while I've been out in the yard, so something needs to be done there," said Peter Langenderfer.

ODOT officials say if everything goes according to plan, construction will begin in 2016.
