City proposes improvements on Wooster Road/Robinson Avenue

The city of Barberton is proposing to address safety issues at the Wooster Road/Robinson Avenue intersection by eliminating the westbound outside travel lane, improve movements at the intersections, and adding signal coordination. To ensure that the decision-making process is comprehensive, input from residents and businesses is needed. 

The project proposes to resurface 0.22-miles of Wooster Road West and 0.04-miles of Wooster Road North. Wooster Road West will also be narrowed and minor side street improvements are proposed. The project also includes drainage improvements, the addition of a multi-use path, and traffic improvements. 

 It is anticipated the proposed work along Wooster Road and Robinson Avenue, will not restrict access to adjacent businesses or residences. A minimum of one lane will be maintained in each direction for majority of construction. The project is scheduled for the summer of 2022 and the estimated cost is  $1,031,000.

    This was always an awkward intersection. But I agree with CBV, why this when there are roads in the city that have more craters than the moon?
