PERRYSBURG - A roundabout planned in 2015 is the first step toward building a new corridor through the southeast end of the city.
The new intersection will allow continuous traffic flow at Carronade Drive and Eckel Junction Road and is the initial move toward shifting traffic onto Carronade, Administrator Bridgette Kabat said during a Service-Safety Committee meeting Monday.
"This is kind of like phase one to ultimately having Carronade being the feeder to (Ohio) 199, and closing off Eckel Junction and making a cul-de-sac," Kabat said.
Carronade will eventually be extended to connect with Ohio 199.
Council President John Kevern indicated the plan had been in the works for several years, and the committee voted 3-0 to fund up to $43,700 in design work this year. Also supporting the effort were new councilors Jim Matuszak and Barry VanHoozen.
Engineer Doug Dariano said he solicited proposals for the work early in 2013, but no design money was budgeted. Poggemeyer Design Group will be contracted to draw the plans, which he estimated at $40,800.
"If you look at the quadrants of that intersection, they have done all the subdivision work in that area, so they're very familiar with the project area," Dariano said.

The murder trial of a Woodville man accused of killing one CSX worker and injuring two others with a vehicle late last year began Monday in the courtroom of Judge Alan Mayberry.
Cody Ross Rickard, 26, Woodville, was indicted by a Wood County grand jury on one count of murder and two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide in the death of Paul Castle, 34, Paintsville, Ky. He was also indicted on two counts each of vehicular assault and felonious assault in the Oct. 28 incident on Bradner Road, near James Street in Bradner.
According to the Sheriff's Office, Rickard was driving on a portion of Bradner Road that was a construction site due to work on the railroad there. He reportedly drove around two sets of barricades and into the construction site, striking a total of three CSX workers, including Castle. The other two men were identified as Luis Knott and James Conley.

Rossford to try for 2 fire levies PDF Print E-mail

ROSSFORD - City Council voted to seek renewals for two fire levies, but a request for new money for the department will have to wait until November.
The council unanimously voted to place a 1-mill renewal for fire protection and a 0.6-mill renewal for equipment and buildings on the May ballot.
The Public Safety Committee also recommended a request for a 0.5 mill levy for equipment and buildings, but that ran into opposition on council and failed to secure the five votes needed to pass it as an emergency measure.
Councilman Daniel Wagner, who chairs the Public Safety Committee, said members decided to put each request up separately so if voters turned down the additional expenditures "we wouldn't lose basic services."
Councilman Robert Ruse said he didn't have a problem with the renewals, but felt that the request for new money should have been presented early enough so that it could be given three readings, instead of being pushed through at one meeting.
The request to put the items on the ballot must be at the Board of Elections by Feb. 5.
The request could be "pushed off to November," Ruse said.

Bowling Green's Joe Boyle has a tight window of opportunity to make his first-ever full marathon happen.
So tight, in fact, that he's got the 26.2 mile outdoor run scheduled for a "crazy" date: This Sunday - ice, snow and windchill notwithstanding.
That's because Boyle, a 39-year-old father of three who's battling metastasized kidney cancer, recently got the news he's been waiting and praying for. He's been accepted into a nationwide trial for a new immunotherapy drug, and the treatment is set to begin Feb. 14 at the Cleveland Clinic.
