Fairfield plans intersection fix

Better flow goal at Mack/ Muhlhauser, Ohio 4

        FAIRFIELD — City Council has moved one stepped closer to improving the traffic flow near the intersection of Mack and Muhlhauser roads and Ohio 4.

        Council this week approved an emergency ordinance to enter into a &100,000 contract with Beck Consulting Inc. to appraise real estate needed for the Ohio 4 and Mack/Muhlhauser Road project.

        Public Works Director David Bock said the project, expected to begin in 2002, will shorten the intersection, add additional northbound lanes and widen Muhlhauser Road from Ohio 4 to Ohio 747.

        “One of the major benefits is you're going to have a new road all the way from Route 4 out to (Ohio) 747 and out to Union Centre Boulevard. The other nice feature about this project is it will eliminate the railroad crossing on Muhlhauser Road,” he said.

        Mr. Bock said the project also includes the addition of an overpass at the railroad crossing, a new traffic signal, an underpass and a service drive parallel to Ohio 4.

        The project, which has been in the works for about three years, is expected to take about 18 months. The project will cost about $12 million.
