State Route 91 Project: What Would You Do?

If you called the shots, what would you do with the State Route 91 improvements?

It's the great debate in Twinsburg: Roundabouts or no roundabouts on State Route 91?

As the project stands now, Phase I will widen SR 91 from Post Road to Glenwood Drive and build a roundabout at the Glenwood intersection. Phase II--which is still to be decided--would widen SR 91 to four lanes going to Solon and build a roundabout at Ethan's Drive and Meadowood Boulevard.

But many residents aren't happy about this decision. Some believe it will cause even more traffic problems and be more dangerous for drivers and pedestrians. , discouraging city council from building the roundabouts.

Some would much rather see the road widened at Glenwood and a full left turn signal installed. Others think the roundabouts would be a great way to handle traffic problems at both intersections. And there are those who don't think any changes need to be made.

So what would you do?

I originally thought they were a bad idea but now I really like the roundabout.

I'm all for the roundabouts- slows traffic down and keeps it moving -

I am currently on vacation in Bonaire and there are many roundabouts here. The difference is that the ones here are a lot larger in diameter than the proposed ones on Rt. 91. Even though the roundabouts work very well here, at times it can be very hard to get out onto a main street. There are about 15,000 people on this island, no stop lights and the people are pretty nice. So, I like the roundabouts but am very concerned that people exiting from Sherwin Dr., Warren Parkway, the apartments and Glenwood and Meadowood will have problems getting on to Rt.91. This concern is in part because of my experience here and at the Liberty and other circles. It is also because I did not hear any information on traffic patterns studies that included Sherwin Dr., Warren Parkway and the apartments. Lastly, the video that was shown at Dodge showed very easy to understand signage. It clearly defined what a vehicle operator was required to do approaching the circle, in the circle and then exiting. I think these new circles need similar signage. I think if the Liberty signs were a lot better, than maybe traffic would flow better there. I am not a traffic engineer, so I cannot speak from that informed perspective. As the Missouri license plate says " The show me state. " I would like to see studies that include all of the areas that will be affected by the new traffic flow. If I missed that information, I would like to see it posted somewhere again. Thank you, Bob
