Safety Improvement Planned for SR 43 and SR 171 Intersection
The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has announced plans to improve the intersection of Canton Road (SR43) and Waynesburg Road (SR171). The safety improvements include installing left turn lanes in the north and south bound lanes of Canton Road as well as aerial lighting to brighten the intersection at night. The project is estimated to cost $550,000 and construction is slated for state fiscal year 2022.
The Carroll County intersection was identified on Governor Mike DeWine’s list of the 150 most dangerous intersections in Ohio and ranks number one in District 11. The project will be funded with revenue from the gas tax increase.
