Roundabout Planned In Defiance

On Tues­day night, at the reg­u­lar meet­ing of Defi­ance City Coun­cil, coun­cilmem­bers learned about an inno­v­a­tive traf­fic con­trol device that is being pro­posed for one Defi­ance inter­sec­tion. A round­about was pro­posed by a con­sult­ing firm. Now, the mayor plans to ask coun­cil to approve an appli­ca­tion for an Ohio Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion grant that would pro­vide most of the fund­ing for a sin­gle lane round­about at Ottawa and Cleve­land avenues. The esti­mated cost, accord­ing to Mayor Bob Arm­strong, is $1.339 mil­lion, with the ODOT grant pro­vid­ing 90 per­cent, leav­ing the city’s share at $133,900. A study by ODOT shows 21 vehi­cle crashes occurred at that inter­sec­tion between 2012–2014. So far this year alone, another seven crashes have occurred there.
