Another future roundabout of note will be at the intersection of OH 269 and Danbury Rd in Ottawa County, just east of the northern OH 2/OH 269 interchange. If I'm understanding the STIP correctly this will be constructed in 2025.

This has always been a fascinating intersection to me, built  like an at grade interchange, with stop signs on the ramps that cross the thru movement 269 ramps: https://www.google.com/maps/@41.5055456,-82.8297984,3a,75y,302.04h,83t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s6qudxKS2IIRgyzG9TGeDcg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?entry=ttu




There should be plenty of room to build the roundabout inside the footprint of the original configuration, while possibly leaving at least one of the right turns as its own separate ramp bypassing the roundabout. I could see the southbound 269 ramp staying where it is with the roundabout going south of it. It will be interesting to see what they come up with.

Agreed, 'if you build it, they will come' doesn't necessarily apply to highway construction, a new highway isn't going to do much good if it's not connecting places people are already trying to get to. I think when more and more people (politicians) view highway projects as 'economic development' engines, then wouldn't it dilute their potency?

I just found this on the news feed happening this weekend. If it's been posted already, then obviously someone else saw it and I didn't find it in a post.

Dang. Though it least it happened in a spot where the through traffic detours are pretty easy, full freeway, and not too far out of the way.

Traffic was a mess yesterday afternoon I can only imagine what it's like today.

Edit: I-70 is now open, but looks like replacement of the 4th Street bridge for the crossroads project might have to be expedited. 😂
