New study says state routes need improvements
(2008-08-29)
(WOUB) - A new study says major improvements are needed along State Routes 78 and 37 between Fairfield and Monroe Counties.

The study conducted by consulting firm McCormick and Taylor looked at about 120 miles of highway between Clarington and Lancaster.

Major improvements are suggested in Noble County to the interchange at Interstate 77 and Route 78 as well as at Route 78 and 321 in Caldwell.

Mike Lloyd is Noble County's Community Development Director.

He says it's unclear what the total cost would be for the improvements, but he says the Noble County Commissioners and Noble County Chamber of Commerce have sent in support of the recommendations.

The study's proposals now go to the Ohio Department of Transportion for review.
