The Winton - Ross - Seward Road Improvements project is a widening, repair, and resurfacing project. An inter-laying material, new surface course, thermoplastic pavement markings, and raised pavement markings will be installed the entire length of the work limits. The existing pavement is past its useful life and with the amount of traffic, the pavement mill and replacement, as well as shoulder addition will be a needed infrastructure and safety improvement. This project will include 2.5 miles of Winton from John Gray to Route 4, 0.5 miles of Ross from Mack to Woodridge, and 1.0 mile of Seward from Route 4 to Port Union. Final construction limits will be determined pending bid results.
Average daily traffic is over 10,000 vehicles per day on Winton, nearly 7000 on Ross, and approximately 8200 on Seward. The traveling public should expect no significant delays for much of this project though lane closures will be necessary for some of the work. Seward Road at the CSX railroad crossing may need to be temporarily closed to perform work in this area. OPWC (Ohio Public Works Commission) awarded $800,000 in funding to the City.
