PUBLIC COMMENT:

STATE ROUTE 21 CORRIDOR IMPROVEMENTS

Our residents voiced their concerns and we would like to express their concerns and their suggestions:

Tom Cazantzes, Edwards Road, Doylestown, OH  44230

Doris Lemley, Hametown Road, Doylestown, OH  44230

Craig Thoricht, Taylor Road, Doylestown, OH  44230

Tom Black, William Drive, Doylestown, OH  44230

Bob Clinifelter, Thorn Way, Doylestown, OH  44230

Bernice Ash, Shank Road, Doylestown, OH  44230

CONCERNS:

  • School buses, fire trucks and farm equipment crosses SR21.
  • Concerns regarding 14 school buses that would have to use R-Cuts and go down to the U-turns.  Traffic light is already there. We have traffic from the Meadows, school and you have the other side of Eastern Road, East side to get to Doylestown. We have young children just learning to drive and they have not learned on how to use an R-Cut.  I think we should hold off and do more research.  The Fire Department has got to the trailer courts; they would have to do R-Cuts if you are coming south R-Cut to get to Oak Park on Eastern Road.

CHIPPEWA TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES REGULAR

AT TOWNSHIP HALL    7:00 PM          MARCH 11,       20

CONCERNS: (CONTINUED)

Safety Forces would be delayed if you were having a heart attack.

  • Big changes to SR21/Edwards Road, reasons for safety. People are probably run the lights.
  • I am school bus driver I go to Edwards, cross on Eastern to Taylor, Eastern Road to the light. Traffic light a caution on both sides have 5 – 10 seconds they have to wait.  We don’t have to spend billions of dollars.  Fire service trying to get there sitting at the light.
  • I farm on both sides of SR21 across the road. People will be speeding to get through the light and you have go south to get to North with farm equipment.
  • Eastern Road if you are going north they want you to get off at SR585 loop and then back on. If you were going south, you would have to take the cloverleaf to get to the gas station, Dollar General and those businesses they may well close. Clinton Road heading east you have to cross two lanes to make the R-Cut turns. They would have to have a big U-Turn for those big trucks. You will have three traffic lights to do one.
  • I moved from Clearwater, FL, it is U-Turn capital of the world. U-turns are not safe and they are a bad idea.
  • Safety for the kids on the buses and the buses crosses that road sometimes its six times a day. Safety for EMS & Fire Dept, this will add another 3-5 minutes to get to our home if we have a fire or if are having a heart attack.  If they close these road, they are closing Chippewa Township completely off from the Village of Doylestown in all direction making it harder where we need to go.  My main concern is our kids on the buses crossing SR21 and our safety health and fire.

SOLUTIONS:

  • Use Alternate #1
  • Solution is to put a timed light in if you are going east and west. North and south stays the same.
  • I agree with ODOT.
  • On SR18/Windfall Road, Medina that would be an alternative. Do Eastern Road like Windfall Road.
  • Option/alternative to extend the light.
  • I have seen in Michigan they put blinking lights up about 200 yards to the light and a sign that said, “When flashing prepare to stop”. I think it is much cheaper alternative than a traffic light. The light turns red and the light flashing you need do prepare to stop.  If is flashing the light is going to turn red. SR18/Windfall Road, what they have done now has taken care of those accidents.
  • Including a turn lane so you can turn that helped.
  • Left turn lanes are the best and the flashing lights would be the best solutions.
  • One traffic light with blinker saying it is changing, would be the way to go.
  • Straighten out the situation with signage which lane to be in.
  • Turn light on Edwards North and South has cut down on the accidents

State Representative Scott Wiggam asked the residents for their input:

  • At the Intersections keep the lights
  • U-turns are really bad idea
  • Timing for traffic is out of whack
  • Don’t want anything done
  • Re-pave a section don’t touch anything else
  • Make lights longer
  • Better signs

AT TOWNSHIP HALL    7:00 PM          MARCH 11,       20

State Representative Scott Wiggam asked the residents for their input: (CONTINUED)

  • Smart lights- these sensor tell the lights this car is going too fast and it will hold the light
  • Put turn lane in East and West on Eastern
  • Left turn signal East and West on Eastern Road and Edwards Road
  • No one wants a U-Turn
  • They are dividing the community, no one can get to them
  • They don’t care about us
  • Longer light
  • Left lane on SR21 to turn onto Clinton Road
  • It will create more traffic on Hametown, Shank and Taylor Roads
  • Blinker lights
