In June of 2012 property owners along the concurrent stretch of SR #64, #65 in Middleton Township received letters from the Ohio Department of Transportation (Bowling Green District) stating that "ODOTzilla" bulldozers would invade their private lands armed with eminent domain to attack the woods protecting the 60 degree steep slopes to the rivers edge facing Waterville. Within days, "ODOTzilla" arrived and laid to waste trees and turf and undermined support for the roadway above, mocking God's handiwork since the last ice age. ODOT's letter states there will be reimbursement for damages.
We the owners consider the several parcels of over five acres to be gone and headed to the Maumee Bay without restoration on a major scale and will have nothing to do with the liability of the roadway taking out the Waterville bridge and plugging the Toledo water intake.
This one is on you Todd Audet P.E., ODOT District 2 deputy director and David Charville, Tetra Tech project manager.
It has been 9 months since the damage was done with no sign of restoration.
A series of several heavy thunderstorms are predicted to commence. We are willing to sell you the parcels now and you can pick them up down stream (somewhere) in May.
Summon the Army Corps of Engineers dredger!
