The project proposes to restrict access to the SR 82/Howland Wilson Road intersection in Howland Township by eliminating left-turn movements from eastbound and westbound SR 82.  Additionally, the project proposes to remove the existing traffic signal and cul-de-sac northbound and southbound Howland Wilson Road while still maintaining access for vehicles turning right on Howland-Wilson Road. No new permanent and/or temporary right-of-way is anticipated for the project. At least one lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained at all times. Construction is expected to begin in May 2025 and last approximately seven months.

Below is a diagram of the recommended preferred alternative.

This section is for frequently asked questions and project-related questions. You may notice that some projects require one or more formal comment period(s) with deadlines for comments to be considered during certain phase(s) of the project development process. Typically called the “public comment period," this is when ODOT asks the public for input before an important decision needs to be made, such as choosing a preferred alternative. You may notice these periods generally occur immediately following a public meeting.

All comments received, regardless of when or how they are submitted, will be reviewed and considered and/or responded to by the ODOT project team. Comments received through this forum will, when appropriate, be publicly posted along with ODOT’s response; Such comments will be moderated to remove personal information prior to posting.
