LIMA – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), announced Monday it is seeking public comments regarding proposed projects, including two in Paulding County:
• Safe Routes To School - Antwerp Phase II (PID: 93589) – The proposed project is funded with federal funds from the Safe Routes to School Program. The Village of Antwerp and the Antwerp Local School District have proposed to add new sidewalk along the west side of Harrmann Road from the Antwerp School to Canal Road and along the north side of Canal Road from Harrmann Road westerly to Kroos Drive. Traffic during this project will be maintained at all times. The construction of this project is currently scheduled for the fall of 2015.
• ODOT Paulding County Garage (95968) – The proposed project is sponsored by ODOT and includes acquiring land for a new full-service facility at the existing Paulding County garage site to replace the existing out-of-date facility. An adjacent property was put up for sale by the current owner and ODOT is pursuing purchasing it. Once purchased the structure will be removed to prepare for a new facility. Property purchase is scheduled for summer 2013; however, a schedule for structure removal and construction of a new facility has not been determined.
