  State Says It Will Build $1.4 Million Roundabout At Wildwood And Glenwood  
  November 10, 2022 Edition  
     Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) Director Dr. Jack Marchbanks have announced details on $121 million in new traffic safety projects planned for Ohio, including the installation of approximately two dozen roundabouts in numerous counties across the state.
      Among the projects is a $1.4 million roundabout at Wildwood Dr. and Glenwood Ave., where construction is scheduled to fiscal year 2027.
      “A top priority of my administration has been making travel in our state safer - particularly at Ohio intersections that are known to be dangerous,” said Gov. DeWine. “Studies show that roundabouts significantly reduce the likelihood of serious or deadly intersection crashes, so we’re investing in these projects to save lives in the future.”
      According to ODOT, there were only six traffic deaths at Ohio roundabouts from 2017-2021 compared to 1,126 deaths at a signalized or stop-controlled intersection.
      “Roundabouts save lives. They reduce severe crashes, move traffic more efficiently, and are cheaper to maintain than signalized intersections,” said ODOT Director Marchbanks.
      Funding for these projects will be awarded through ODOT’s Highway Safety Improvement Program which, under the DeWine-Husted Administration, has grown to become one of the largest traffic safety programs in the country.
