BOARDMAN

Some residents oppose a proposed roundabout at a busy township intersection.

The idea for a roundabout at Mathews and Sheridan roads first was raised in 2008.

Township Administrator Jason Loree and Road Superintendent Larry Wilson both said they have received calls from residents who oppose a roundabout replacing the traffic light at the intersection, which is maintained by Mahoning County.

“We’ve had a lot of complaints that they do not want a roundabout. We’ve told them the county will have a public forum and they should attend those,” Loree said.

Rob Donham, Mahoning County professional traffic engineer, said the county engineer’s office will have two or three public meetings for residents to voice concern, but he has not received any complaints. Dates for those meetings have not been set.

Last week, the Mahoning County commissioners approved about $217,000 for a design study.
