Road projects planned in Liberty, Weathersfield

Plans are being made by the Trumbull County Engineer’s Office to improve Trumbull Avenue in Liberty and West Liberty Street in Weathersfield.

Engineer Randy Smith proposes milling and resurfacing 0.6 miles of Trumbull Avenue from Atlanta Avenue to state Route 193 (Belmont Avenue). The project also proposes to mill, chip, seal and resurface 0.9 miles of West Liberty Street from Salt Springs Road to the Girard city limits.

Smith said additional work includes the replacement of one culvert on Trumbull Avenue between Utah Avenue and Belmont Avenue, partial depth pavement repairs, the installation of radar detection at the intersection of West Liberty Street and Salt Springs Road, and the application of edge / center stop lines and other pavement markings throughout the newly paved sections of Trumbull Avenue and West Liberty Street.

Smith said the $636,000 project is scheduled to begin construction in summer 2024.

Officials said during construction, traffic will be maintained at all times on Trumbull Avenue and West Liberty Street, except when it will be necessary to close Trumbull Avenue for a maximum of 14 days during the replacement of the cross culvert. The official detour for the closure will use Belmont Avenue, Gypsy Lane and U.S. Route 422.

Smith said while the proposed project will not result in any substantial impacts to environmental resources, the engineer’s office is seeking any comments the public may have regarding the proposed project.

For questions or comments concerning the project should be directed to Gary Shafer by Oct. 16 at the Trumbull County Engineer’s Office, 650 N. River Road NW, Warren, 44483 or call 330-675-2640.
