Route 306 Resurfacing Project

Kirtland's main thoroughfare is undergoing construction. This is needed because the road surface is showing its age; the last time it was repaved was in the year 2000.

The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) will resurface SR 306 as an LPA project. Road improvements and paving will occur along the entire length of Route 306 in the city. The Lake County Engineer's office is the Project Manager for this project.

Most of the project is covered by outside funding. Kirtland will receive $1,356,600 from ODOT, $300,000 from Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC), and $200,000 from Lake County Stormwater Management Department for the drainage improvements. No levy money will be used for this project.

The work covered by the plans and specifications includes: The milling and resurfacing of approximately 4.60 miles of State Route 306 Chillicothe Road from the southerly county Line to 600' South of Kirtland Road, including replacement of existing pavement markings. Required ADA compliant handicap curb ramps will be installed.

Prior to the start of road paving, preliminary improvements must be done. The area slated for drainage improvements is along Route 306 from Route 6 to the Geauga County line. Crews are installing storm drainage pipe some of which will be enclosed and some graded for proper drainage.

We received word that Karvo Companies was awarded the bid contract for the Route 306 road paving project. The start date is still unknown.

Residents can expect lane closures and flaggers controlling traffic in construction areas. Travelers are encouraged to watch carefully as they drive through work zones to protect road workers.

All work under this contract is projected to be completed by late October 2018.
