VIRTUAL PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT MEETING: MIAMI AVENUE TRAFFIC STUDY

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, the Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has prohibited mass gatherings and the CDC has recommended using social distancing to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  Public involvement meetings are very difficult to perform while practicing social distancing.  Due to these issues, the City of Madeira, Ohio is holding this public involvement meeting virtually so that social distancing can easily be performed while engaging with the public about this project.  

This virtual public involvement meeting is being held from August 17, 2020 to September 25, 2020 with a comment session scheduled for September 1, 2020 from 6 P.M. to 7 P.M.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The City of Madeira, Ohio commissioned a Traffic Study along Miami Avenue to study the road diet recommendations from the Madeira Comprehensive Plan from Camargo Road to Euclid Avenue.  Safety concerns along the central business district corridor has resulted from excessive speeding and weaving throughout the corridor, resulting in seventy three crashes and two pedestrian crashes and several 'near miss' pedestrian crashes throughout the corridor.  The road diet design will have one through lane in each direction with a double left center turn lane.  Parking bump outs are staggered with wider sidewalks throughout the corridor.  Two Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon locations accompany the current Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon installation. A raised intersection, two raised crosswalks, and a drive-able median are proposed to help slow the travel speed through the corridor to align with the posted speed limit. High-visiblility crosswalks are proposed at all intersections and mid-block crossings.  New street trees and LED lighting are proposed.  Dynamic Speed Display Devices and Speed Limit Pavement Stamping are proposed. Laurel Avenue will be realigned through the intersection to eliminate the offset intersection.  New signals with backplates will be installed at current signalized intersections.   These traffic calming measures will help reduce crashes in the corridor and realize the goals of the Comprehensive Plan to have increased sidwalk width for patio dining, trees/planters, and an increased pedetrian buffer.
