Road project may take truck traffic out of Archbold

Posted: Updated:
ARCHBOLD, OH (Toledo News Now) -

An effort to reduce traffic and improve safety is underway in Fulton County.

People in downtown Archbold say trucks regularly cut through their streets to get to the Turnpike. They have signs posted to help protect businesses and people in the area.

"They aren't able to make our corners very well," said Carla Rupp of Rupp's Furniture. "The truck traffic is hard because it is a tight spot downtown."

Residents and local business owners say they want to see a change, so the project is at the top of a list recently put together by the Fulton County Engineer, Frank Onweller.

"The ultimate hope would be State Route 66 would move out of downtown Archbold, and would be shifted over on to the improved County Road 24," Onweller said.

Onweller is hoping funding for the project can come from Turnpike revenue bonds, and he just submitted information to the County Engineers Association of Ohio to get the application process started.
