The work is expected to be completed this week with the addition of ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps. Using a $253,000 grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation, the city installed new signals at the intersection to make it a duplicate of the William-Sandusky streets intersection. Also new at the Central-Sandusky intersection are turn-only arrows for those waiting in the left-turn lanes. The turn lanes are expected to reduce the number of traffic accidents, which state statistics showed had a greater likelihood of happening at the site. (For The Gazette | Deborah E. Evans)[/caption]
