Project Description

The proposed SAFETY project will upgrade the signalized intersection of U.S. Route 224 (Waterloo Rd.) and State Route 241 (Massillon Rd.). The intersection is ranked high on both ODOT's 2015 Safety Priority List and AMA TS' 2017 Crash Report. The factors contributing to the high crash rate are: the transition of Route 224 from a freeway to surface street conditions, near sided signals heads, and non-restrictive right-in rightout drives.
