The Ohio Department of Transportation has announced an update on the Wales Road railroad grade separation project in Wood County.
Wales Road between Oram Road and East Broadway Road is now open.
"It will make it a lot easier to get to the other side of Northwood. A lot of times you can get to here from the other side from Wales in five minutes, and if you got to go around, it's 15 minutes. It will be a lot quicker and a lot easier to get over there," said driver Keith Tristan.
ODOT has been working for two years reconstructing Wales Road to improve traffic around Northwood and help drivers, including EMS, avoid trains.
"We still have a lot of work to do on some of the other roads that surround the project area. So, work on Wales is going to continue though next year, and if you have driven along it, you have probably noticed that we still have the surface course to do. So we have one final coat of asphalt to put on top of the entire project, and then we have to do a lot of work on Drouillard Road, in which we are going to be reconnecting that," explained Theresa Pollick, public information officer for ODOT.
Pavement work will resume next year on Wales and Drouillard roads.
The project, with a price tag of $12 million, is expected to be complete in June 2014. All work is weather permitting.
