ODOT Asking For Comment On Projects In Hancock And Putnam Counties

3/27/19 – 11:00 A.M.

ODOT is taking public comment on several planned projects in our region. The agency is proposing the replacement of two bridges on State Route 698 in Hancock County over Tiderishi Creek. Construction would start in the spring of 2021.

ODOT is also proposing projects in Putnam County. The agency wants to buy right-of-way to improve sight distances at the intersection of State Route 12, State Route 696, and Road 6. That project could happen in 2020. ODOT is also proposing an intersection improvement project east of Leipsic at State Route 613 and State Route 2. They plan on starting that project this fall.

A culvert replacement project on State Route 613 near Miller City is also on the table for the spring of 2021.

You can send comments about any of these projects to ODOT’s Nate Tessler by emailing [email protected].
