TRUMBULL COUNTY ENGINEER PLANS
SIDEWALK IMPROVEMENT PROJECT IN HOWLAND TOWNSHIP
The Trumbull County Engineer in cooperation with Howland Township proposes the installation of new sidewalk along both sides of Willow Drive from Warren Sharon Road to High Street and along High Street from Willow Drive to State Route (SR) 46. The project consists of the installation of 795 feet of new sidewalk, new curb ramps/truncated domes to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, catch basin adjustments, and the application of new crosswalk and stop lines, as necessary, throughout the project limits. The proposed project will link pedestrian destinations in the Howland Corners area. No new permanent and/or temporary right-of-way is needed to construct the project.
The $189,000 project is scheduled for construction in the fall of 2021. During construction, a minimum of lane of traffic shall always be maintained during construction. Access shall also be maintained to all adjacent properties, businesses, and intersection streets for the duration of the project.
To ensure the decision-making process is comprehensive, Trumbull County Engineer, Randy Smith, 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. Trumbull County Engineer also requests information regarding the presence of any known cultural resources in the vicinity of the project including prehistoric and historic archaeological sites, historic bridges, historic buildings, landmarks and districts.
Any questions or concerns about the project should be directed to Mr. Gary W. Shaffer, P.E. by January 30, 2021 at the Trumbull County Engineer’s Office, 650 North River Road, Warren, Ohio 44483 or by telephone at 330-675-2640 or by email at HWShaffe@co.trumbull.oh.us
