T-intersection completed at I-680 and US 224

BOARDMAN

Construction on U.S. Route 224 at its intersections with Interstate 680 by the Ohio Department of Transportation advanced with the opening of a T-intersection, with a traffic light at 680 southbound exits to 224 eastbound and westbound.

“That was one of the main things we were trying to do with this project, was try to make that intersection safer” with the addition of the T-intersection and traffic light, said Brent Kovacs, ODOT District 4 spokesman.

Prior to the installation of the traffic light at the intersection, there were two separate exits for 224 eastbound and westbound, and motorists had to merge onto 224. Motorists now turn left onto 224 eastbound and right onto 224 westbound when they reach the light.

If this guy thinks he solved the problem at this intersection he's goofier then a bag of rocks. All he did was cause a traffic mess. At least before you could get from Poland to Boardman in under 10 minutes, now it takes 30 minutes or more. If I could, I would fire all the so-called engineers use designed this job. Because they are incompetent and they obviously they don't live in the area either.

Glad to see that is the permanent plan and not a temp thing. That weave-merge was a failed concept from the beginning. Gotta wonder then why they paved all the way to the "old" exit but we will see.
