Work on a long-planned upgrade to the Haskins Road (Ohio 64) and West Poe Road intersection in Bowling Green will begin April 7, weather permitting.
Although Poe Road will remain open to traffic, there will be no access to Haskins Road, either north or south, from the intersection for 30 days.
"Access to properties and businesses will be maintained throughout construction, although facilities with multiple driveways may be limited to a single driveway," City Engineer Troy Sonner said Friday during an open house about the project.
Toward the end of the project when pavement on Poe Road is milled and replaced, traffic will be limited to one lane, with flaggers controlling traffic.
The $850,000 project will add left turn lanes on Haskins Road, resurface the intersection, replace the traffic signal system, replace curb ramps, sidewalks and curbs at the intersection and a add new sidewalk on the west side of Haskins from Poe Road.

Clinic expansion progresses PDF Print E-mail

The Wood County Board of Health has approved nearly $20,000 in architectural services for an upcoming clinic renovation and expansion.
Board members voted unanimously Thursday to approve an $8,500 contract with Poggemeyer Design Group for professional architectural services for renovations to the clinic area, and a further $11,000 contract with Poggemeyer for architectural services concerning the expansion of the clinic.
Plans for the restructured clinic include a redesigned flow through the area and four new exam rooms, allowing more patients to be treated.
The renovation is to be funded by part of a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration, which the health district received last year. The Wood County Community Health and Wellness Center is expected to increase clients and services as part of the $1.4 million grant, which allows for up to $100,000 in renovations the first year. That would only address reorganization in clinic space and is separate from the possibility of a building expansion.
Health District Commissioner Pamela Butler said the plans regard "turning office space into clinic space and really turning space around. This one is about the potential of, as we move forward, designing the potential of new services."

PERRYSBURG - Penta Career Center's board has accepted the resignation of a marketing education instructor accused of inappropriate conduct.
Lisa Bell has taught at Penta for 10 1/2 years, and has worked with the DECA program. Her resignation was effective Feb. 12, the same day she met with the board for 1 1/2 hours in executive session.
The recommendation to accept the resignation was approved at Thursday's board meeting.
The list of offenses Bell is accused of include inappropriate and profane language and inappropriate comments to a student or students in her classroom and during DECA leadership conference field trips.
She also apparently shared confidential information about students with a field trip chaperone, and has shared student test scores with other students in violation of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records, among other accusations.
Also at the meeting, the board heard presentations from Nicole Lambert, of Bowling Green, on her experiences at the ProStart Culinary Competition and her team's management entry.

WATERVILLE - The Ohio Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting March 27 to present three alternatives for the Waterville Bridge replacement project on State Routes 64/65 in Lucas and Wood counties.
The meeting will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Waterville Primary School's Community Room, 457 Sycamore Lane, Waterville.
The three alternatives including a design for a bridge on the existing bridge's alignment, a bridge built on a parallel alignment, and a bridge built on an offset, said ODOT District 2 Spokesperson Theresa Pollick,
The project overall will include a wider bridge, installation of a roundabout at the SR 64/65 intersection, and necessary related work.
The replacement project, she said, came about because of the age of the bridge. "It's just at the end of its lifespan," she said.
