Here is the proposed project:
Project Location: Location: 1 — Church Street at Park Street crosswalk. Location 2 — Main Street (Ohio 601) at Church Street (Ohio 113) at traffic signal. Location 3 — Main Street at Edison School crosswalk. Location 4 — South Main Street from Oak Street to Old State Road.
Proposed Improvements: The village of Milan proposes to construct various pedestrian improvements as part of the Safe Routes to Schools program.
The improvements include: Pavement marking and traffic control sign upgrades will be installed on Church Street at Park Street. The Main Street at Church Street traffic signal installation will be upgraded with installation of pedestrian traffic signal heads. Pavement marking and a rectangular rapid flash beacon will be installed on Main Street the Edison School. About 4,000 feet of sidewalk and curb ramps will be installed along the west side of Main Street from Oak Street to Old State Road. The improvements are planned inside the existing right of way. Tree removal and tree trimming inside the existing right of way will be needed for the proposed improvements. Personal property items inside the existing right of way may need to be relocated.
During construction, which is expected to last six months, all roads will remain open with periodic one lane closure within the project limits.
