CONSTRUCTION INFO: 2015 Construction Project Summary June 25th UPDATE
As always, please use caution when driving in construction areas. Be alert so no one gets hurt!
Red Bird Road Construction:
The Board of Madison Township trustees were given the authorization by the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) this month to proceed with the final phase of the Red Bird Road Improvement Project. Red Bird Road will be closed to all through-traffic from June 9, 2015 to August 7, 2015.
State funding for this final phase was authorized in July of 2014 and Madison Township has one year to start the project from the date of the authorization. The final phase, which is known as "Red Bird Road Phase III", involves the widening , re-paving, and construction of a left turn lane at Chapel & Red Bird Roads. The final phase of this project will begin at Kirkwall Street and proceed south to Chapel Road.
Because of the timing of the funding from OPWC, the Township Trustees have delayed the start of Red Bird Road Phase III until June of 2015 when school is out of session. The Board of Trustees feel this is the best way to proceed so that the schools will have minimal, if no, disruption. The project must be completed by September 4, 2015. If any resident has a question about this project, you can contact the Township Administrator, Lee Bodnar, at 440-428-5128.

do Lockwood to Chapel. Please contact Administrator, Lee Bodnar if you
