ODOT plans to bring red lights, turn lane to East Market St in Warren

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

Drivers familiar with East Market Street in Warren know that turning on to Route 82, or coming off of the highway, can be a hassle. 

The Ohio Department of Transportation has announced plans that could make traversing the lanes a little simpler for drivers. 

According to a release from ODOT, plans for construction in the area will create a specific turn lane for drivers attempting to turn on Warren Sharon Road. 

A traffic light will be installed to control the flow of traffic turning on to the state route. 

In addition, drivers exiting eastbound 82 will soon be able to turn left onto East Market Street, with the addition of a second turn signal. 

ODOT says the project also proposes to remove the westbound Warren Sharon Road slip ramp/merge lane onto East Market Street and realign westbound Warren Sharon Road so it terminates into a signalized intersection with East Market Street.

The construction, estimated to cost approximately $800,000, is slated to begin in the spring of 2019. 

During the construction, ODOT says eastbound East Market Street at Warren Sharon Road and SR 82 will be closed for a maximum of 30 consecutive days. 

In addition, Warren Sharon Road at East Market Street and SR 82 will be closed for a maximum of 30 consecutive days to remove the westbound Warren Sharon Road slip ramp/merge lane onto East Market Street and realign westbound Warren Sharon Road so it ends at a signalized intersection with East Market Street.  

ODOT says these closures may or may not happen at the same time. 

ODOT is seeking comments from the public about the social, environmental and economic impacts of this proposed project.  

Environmental impacts include those involving archeological, architectural and ecological resources, regulated materials and the general location of the project. Any comments on the environmental impacts and/or the proposed project may be submitted to the Ohio Department of Transportation by October 9, 2018 to D04.PIO@dot.ohio.gov or the Sean Carpenter sean.carpenter@dot.ohio.gov
