I received a message from ODOT Project Manager that I wanted to pass along in regards to some upcoming road closures due to paver replacement at the roundabout June 12th through the 16th.
As you know the Meadowood roundabout is open and operational. I have received quite a bit of feedback and I wanted to share what’s being done at this point.
First a reminder… traffic IN the roundabout ALWAYS has the right of way. That being said, not everyone realizes this (especially southbound traffic on Route 91) so I urge you to proceed with caution at all times.
Monday, September 30th – Meadowood Blvd and Ethan’s Drive will be reopened by end of day. Beginning Tuesday, October 1st – Glenwood Drive at the Darrow Road intersection will be closed to all eastbound / westbound traffic for approximately 14 days.
As you know the City of Twinsburg is in the midst of a large construction project on Route 91 and near the Glenwood Roundabout. While Council will not meet again until August 27th I wanted to provide an update. Not only as a Councilperson but as a resident I understand and share in the frustration in how long this project has taken. I reached out to City Engineer Amy Mohr asking for an update, timeline and cause of any delays. Below is her response to those questions.
Darrow Rd Improvements from Glenwood Dr. to Lisa Ln. (Solon City Limits). Monday, June 17th the traffic pattern will be changed. North and southbound traffic will be shifted from the east side of Darrow Road to the recently constructed west side of the road. Meadowood Drive will remain closed.
On Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018, the Glenwood Drive/ Darrow Road roundabout will be restriped. The purpose of the restriping is to have the roundabout function as a single lane roundabout with the following exception: northbound and southbound traffic will have a dedicated right turn lane that must turn right after YIELDING to circulating traffic in the roundabout. Pavement markings and delineators will be used to restrict traffic from the curb lane from circulating the roundabout.
The Roundabout at Glenwood and 91 is a subject that gets talked about often. I’ve been asked if I think it’s too small. Here’s my answer.
