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.
County objects to BG request that could cripple transportation plan PDF Print E-mail

Wood County Commissioners Thursday morning approved an updated Public-Human Service Transportation plan update, moving a section of the plan that Bowling Green officials do not like to an appendix, rather than removing it completely from the document, as the city requested.
The updated plan, when submitted to the Ohio Department of Transportation, helps human service agencies apply for grants to purchase new or replacement vehicles to transport their clients.
Tuesday morning commissioners heard city officials ask that a section listing a Transportation Development Plan as a goal be removed from the plan. City officials believe the mention of the TDP could threaten money the city receives for its on-demand transit service and in the long-run expose the city to additional costs.
The amended plan indicates the idea of a TDP should be part of annual reviews of the entire document. A TDP would be needed if agencies and political subdivisions wanted to coordinate transportation services across the county. Bowling Green has been represented at the stakeholder meetings, along with agencies and a few other political subdivisions, where the updated plan was developed.

PEMBERVILLE - The Eastwood Committee to Save Our Elementaries plans to attend Monday night's Eastwood Board of Education meeting in the high school library.
The board meeting starts at 7 p.m. and the group plans to gather 10 minutes before the meeting.
The committee plans to ask the board to hold off on any spending of money or decisions related to a central campus elementary or any new construction until the committee has time to meet with the board and share information they have collected.
The committee organized in an effort to stop any levy that would consolidate the Luckey and Pemberville elementaries into one central campus elementary. Its slogan is "We voted no twice - no central elementary." Its mission statement is "Supporting the Eastwood School District while maintaining our local village elementaries."

PERRYSBURG - With decisions on a Costco warehouse looming, supporters were outweighed by the sustained concerns of some residents who don't want the store at the proposed location.
Worries, largely about traffic, surround Costco's desired location at Ohio 25 and Eckel Junction Road, an already busy intersection where some people said road improvements won't be enough to alleviate problems at an already crowded location.
Costco wants to put a 154,000-square-foot store on horse farm property just north of Interstate 475 that is zoned C-4 Highway Commercial.
The city plans to speed up traffic by making $2.2 million in improvements including additional turn lanes, a portion of which will be paid for by Costco. Improvements will still only slightly improve traffic flow, with an anticipated rating of "D" representing the Ohio Department of Transportation's minimum acceptable standard.
