GPD Group, the company used by Twinsburg to design its roundabouts on Darrow Road, has been hired as the traffic engineering firm in Solon.
After years of using the same company to handle its traffic engineering services, Solon City Council plans to hire a new firm to try to help alleviate that city's traffic woes on 91.
Some Solon officials expressed concerns over a potential conflict with projects in Twinsburg -- GPD is designing roundabouts on Darrow Road in Twinsburg near the Solon border.
Solon Councilman Rick Bell has been adamant in recent weeks that he believes GPD has a conflict of interest because its designing two roundabouts on Darrow Road in Twinsburg near the Solon border.
He worries that the roundabouts will affect traffic in Solon and wonders how it will affect the traffic light at Lisa Lane, which the city installed for about $250,000.
"The traffic light that’s there at the end of town and the roundup they’ve recommended to the Twinsburg Council are in direct conflict with one another," Bell said.
Solon officials will next negotiate a fee with GPD.
