Traffic control changing on Ohio 113

• Jul 6, 2018 at 4:00 AM

SANDUSKY — On July 10, two intersections in eastern Erie County will be changed to all-way stop control.

Ohio 113 and Ohio 60 is currently a signalized intersection, and Ohio 113 and Ohio 61/Ceylon Road is currently two-way stop control.

Both of these intersections will become all-way stop with red overhead flashers and stop signs to control traffic.

Ohio 113 and Ohio 60 was studied last year as part of annual signal evaluations by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), and it was discovered that traffic at the intersection no longer met minimum volumes to warrant a traffic signal per federal and state guidelines. However, traffic on Ohio 113 and Ohio 60 is relatively similar on both roadways, so all-way stop was a good alternative for operational and safety reasons.

Ohio 113 and Ohio 61/Ceylon Rd was studied as part of ODOT’s annual Highway Safety Improvement program, and that intersection also has relatively similar traffic on Ohio 113 and Ohio 61. Installing all-way stop control at this intersection will help move northbound and southbound traffic through the intersection and reduce angle and left turn crashes at the intersection.
