Gender Road/Lithopolis Road Roundabout
Canal Winchester, OH
The City of Canal Winchester hired EMH&T to provide a study and professional services on South Gender Road (SR674) at Lithopolis Road in order to identify improvements for the intersection. The study provided the City with current and future traffic volumes, which led to short and long-term strategies to improve the safety and capacity of the intersections. Alternative concepts were included in the various strategies provided to Canal Winchester, including a roundabout, which was selected as the preferred alternative. Our team additionally provided assembly of an OPWC funding application that led to funding for the project. Currently, the expandable roundabout intersection is completed and functions as a single lane in the interim-build condition, with provisions for expanding the intersection to multiple lanes in the future.
