Clark County offering public option to comment on roundabout project

The Clark County Engineer’s Office is hosting an online open house to provide the public with an opportunity to review and comment on a new roundabout project.

The proposed improvements will be made to the intersection of Selma Pike and East Possum Road and will include a single-lane roundabout, according to a statement from the county.

The Board of Clark County Commissioners voted in favor of moving forward with the roundabout in February of 2019. Commissioners agreed the improvement was needed in anticipation of the intersection becoming increasingly busy due to the ongoing construction project and traffic from Shawnee High School.

The projects can be viewed online under the engineer’s office tab of the county’s website from July 15 until August 31.

“Clark County invites your questions or comments regarding the project,” the statement said. “Comments are requested by August 31 to ensure they may be considered in the project development.”

Public comments can be submitted two ways; either by using the ‘comment here’ button at the link above or by contacting the Engineer’s Office directly.

Chief Deputy Paul DeButy can be reached by phone at 937-521-1802, email or letter at Clark County Engineer’s Office, 4075 Laybourne Road, Springfield, OH 45505.

A summary of all comments received and the county’s response, as well as a status update on the project, will be sent out about two months after the close of the comment period.
