Proposed changes to Lincoln and Blanchard Streets could make way for dedicated left turn lanes, bicycle lanes, upgrades to pedestrian ramps & traffic signals, and widening of sidewalks into multi-use paths. The area highlighted in red on the map illustrates the location of the proposed changes. Graphs and images of the proposed reconfiguration can be viewed here.

The total cost for the project is approximately $2.9 million. Two grants from the Ohio Department of Transportation would cover about $2.75 million. The balance would be paid by the City.

A public meeting will take place on August 21st from 6-7:30pm in Council Chambers. The City will discuss the proposed projects, and citizens will have opportunities to ask questions. Additionally, questions and comments can be submitted via comment sheet. The forms can be turned in at the meeting, you can download a comment sheet, or you can fill out and submit it online. The form can also be emailed to or mailed to: City of Findlay Engineering Department; 318 Dorney Plaza; Findlay, OH 45840. Form submission deadline is September 6th.

Council Chambers can be found on the first floor of the Municipal Building. Enter through Dorney Plaza, and turn left.
