Construction Info:

Madison Township Trustees Announce 2014 Road Repair Program:

– The Madison Township Board of Trustees announced a total of $94,605.50 to fund the Township’s Road Repair Program for 2014.  The contract for the road repair services was awarded on July 15, 2014 to the Barbicas Construction Company of Akron Ohio. 

The following roads are scheduled for repaving and repair:  Bellaire Avenue, Berwick Street, Edgewood Avenue and Forest Place.

Project construction is scheduled to begin on September 2, 2014 and conclude by September 5, 2014 (barring inclement weather).  For any additional information or any questions, please contact Township administrator, Lee R. Bodnar, at 440-428-5128.

McMackin Road Closing:
The Lake County Engineer's Department have informed us that they have closed McMackin Road between Chapel Road and Lockwood Road effective August 13th. The road is expected to be closed for the next 60 days to replace a road culvert.

Individuals wanting to go north on McMackin must use Haines Road as a detour route.

Redbird Road Construction:
The Board of Madison Township Trustees were given the authorization by the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) this month to proceed with the final phase of the Redbird Road Improvement Project. 

State Funding for this final phase was just authorized and Madison Township has one year to start the project from the date of authorization. The final phase which is known as “Redbird Road Phase III” involves the widening, re-paving and construction of a left turn lane at Chapel & Redbird Roads. This final phase of the project will begin at Kirkwall Street and proceed south to Chapel Road. 

Because of the timing of the funding from OPWC, Township Trustees have decided to delay the start of Redbird Road Phase III until June of 2015 when school is out of session. The Board of Trustees feel this is the best way to proceed so that the schools will have minimal, if no, disruption. The project would be scheduled for completion prior to the 2015-2016 school year that begins in August of 2015. If any resident has a question about this project you can contact Township Administrator Lee Bodnar at 440-428-5128.
