This project involves the construction of a traffic signal at the intersection of Twinsburg Road and Olde 8 in Northfield Center Township, which is currently an intersection operating with a two-way stop. This intersection was consistently in the top 5 high crash intersection list of County-owned intersections and the Northfield Center Township Trustees also requested improvements. SCE received federal safety funds for an intersection study and the study showed that a signal at the intersection was warranted. The traffic signal project will include the installation of loop detectors and have a battery backup.
Design work is complete. This project is anticipated going out to bid in March of 2020.
Intersection of County Highway 161 and County Highway 112.
Maintenance of Traffic:
Construction of the signal will not require the detouring of any traffic, but there will be times when flaggers will restrict traffic to a single lane and there will be short time periods of less than 5 minutes when all traffic will be stopped while new overhead cables are being installed to support the individual traffic signal heads.
