Scioto Darby Road and Leppert Road Improvements Project Update

Posted January 26, 2018 in Community Alert by Anna Subler

Scioto Darby Road has been lined with orange barrels in preparation for work to begin on the Scioto Darby Road and Leppert Road Improvements Project. For about the next two months, crews will be off the road doing utility work. This project will not impact traffic until the end of March. The City wants to keep you updated — be the first to know by signing up for project email notifications here. New graphics and information will come soon.

Project improvements include:

  • Two through lanes of traffic in each direction along Scioto Darby Road from Leppert Road to Bradford Drive.
  • Construction of two modern roundabouts along Scioto Darby Road, one at the intersection of Leppert Road and the other at Veterans Memorial Drive.
  • Construction of new asphalt multi-use paths along both sides of Scioto Darby Road from Veterans Memorial Drive to the existing paths located just east of Cosgray Road.
  • Construction of a new asphalt multi-use path along the east side of Leppert Road from Scioto Darby Road north to the Heritage Rail Trail.
  • Construction of new asphalt multi-use paths on both sides of Veterans Memorial Drive from Scioto Darby Road south to the existing municipal park pedestrian facilities.
  • Full street lighting along Scioto Darby Road and partial lighting of Leppert Road to illuminate pedestrian crossings.
  • Mid-block pedestrian crossings at select locations protected by curbed medians and/or user activated flashing beacons.
  • Traffic calming elements including raised crosswalks at the roundabouts and a raised intersection at Leppert Road and Laura Lane.
