CCI worked with the City of Canal Fulton, Ohio to develop plans for the improvement of the Cherry Street (SR 93) and Locust Street (CR 228) intersection. Following the ODOT PDP, CCI developed, analyzed, and made a recommendation for a Preferred Alternative. In addition to the roadway and intersection improvements the Alternative Engineering Repost (AER) identified several Cultural and Historical impacts that required attention.
Improvements included widening and resurfacing 750 feet of Cherry Street (SR 93) and 700 feet of Locust Street (CR 228) for intersection geometric improvements, improved turn lane storage capacity, and improved truck movement. The project also includes traffic signal improvements, improved pedestrian access. Significant storm sewer reconstruction was required due to the widening, but also capacity of the aged sewers and flat grades. Right of Way design was challenging given the tight corridors of original City Streets. Close coordination with residents helped facilitate agreeable solutions quickly.
A review of the City’s Capital Improvement Plan revealed a future replacement of the water main along Cherry Street. CCI recommended the City consider the replacement during construction. The City and the Contractor developed an Alternative MOT plan that included a full closure of the intersection. This accelerated the construction schedule by sixteen months and shortened to one construction season.
