The Circleville City School District received OSFC funding to construct a new school campus adjacent to the existing High School located on Clark Drive. To assist the District and enhance the area for future development the City of Circleville took the initiative to extend Clark Drive to US 22. This roadway extension serves as the northeastern gateway to the City.
Safety and functionality were the driving parameters for the project, but we could not lose sight of the aesthetic components. To enhance the effect of this gateway a roundabout was included at the intersection of the school entrance and Clark Drive. This feature promotes slower speeds while still accommodating the anticipated traffic volumes.
Extending the new public roadway to US Route 22 required additional coordination with the Ohio Department of Transportation. ODOT guidelines required additional turn lane and intersection improvements further extending the scope of the project.
To promote development along this corridor the City chose to extend water and storm sewer services. The 12” water main completed a loop extending along US 22 increasing the level and quality of service to the existing customers along this line.
Key Features • 2,150 LF of New Roadway • Single Lane Roundabout • 3,300 LF of 12” Water Main • 3,600 LF of Storm Sewer • Turn Lanes on US 22 • Rehabilitation of Existing Clark Drive • Multi Jurisdictional Coordination
