The East Wooster and Campbell Hill Road roundabout project is scheduled to begin on March 20th. Initial work will include replacing the water line within the footprint of the roundabout and then will proceed with the roundabout construction. Access to businesses and one lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained throughout the duration of the project.
During the week of March 20th, work will begin with the installation of a temporary traffic signal. The outside lanes of East Wooster Street will close during this time. Once the site prep work is complete, the first phase of the project will begin.
During the week of March 28th, traffic will be shifted to the southside of East Wooster, allowing for one lane of traffic in each direction (eastbound and westbound). Campbell Hill Road will remain open, and access to Alumni Drive will be restricted to Mercer Road during this phase. This first phase of construction will include the water line replacement and the construction of the new roundabout. Once the waterline portion of the project is complete, work will begin on the roundabout, focusing in the area where the northern two-thirds of the roundabout will be located.
During the second phase of the project, the road work will focus on the southern portion of the roundabout. During this phase, eastbound and westbound traffic will be shifted to the north side of East Wooster, with traffic proceeding through the newly constructed northern portion of the roundabout. Access to Campbell Hill Road will be prohibited during this phase.
Phase 3 of the project will involve the construction of a decorative median island between the newly constructed roundabout and the existing roundabouts at I-75. Phase 4 will include final paving and striping of the work area.
Intermittent traffic delays and closures should be expected over the next few months as the project progresses. Dependent upon weather and progress of work, the entire project is anticipated to be complete by August 1st, in advance of the National Tractor Pulls, BGSU Move In, and other significant fall events taking place in the City.
