Construction work on Winton Road is progressing well! Work on the southbound side of Winton Road is almost complete! The intermediate course of asphalt has been temporarily marked for two-way traffic, and the traffic pattern change has occurred. PLEASE RESPECT THE NO LEFT TURN SIGNS! Traffic backs up significantly when a driver chooses to disregard the NO LEFT turn sign and sits at the intersection holding up everyone else.
We expect work to move along pretty quickly on the northbound side. A top layer of asphalt will do down on the north and south bound lanes at the conclusion of the project.
You may have noticed a new 9-foot wide raised median strip being constructed in the center of Winton Road. It will be planted with trees to give this section of Winton Road a distinctive look. The addition of the median was a recommendation of the Village’s Comprehensive Plan, the goal being to create a sense that you have arrived in the heart of Greenhills.
There has been some debate on the width of the road. FYI: when completed, both the north and south bound lanes will be one and a half feet wider than the previous road, for an overall added width of 3 feet.
