Kelly Road Improvement Project, City of Hermitage
This project is focused on making bicycling and pedestrian safety improvements to Kelly Road in the City of Hermitage, Mercer County.
The project includes the portion of Kelly Road, a locally owned roadway, between the bridge over the Shenango River and the entrance to the United States Army Corps of Engineers Mahaney Recreation Area.
The existing roadway is relatively narrow, has no shoulders, and immediate roadside ditches for drainage. The proposed project will widen and resurface the roadway, add shoulders, make drainage improvements, provide pedestrians and bicyclists with a safer route through the project corridor, and include new “Share the Road” signage and pavement markings.
Work is expected to begin in July 2024 and be complete by late September 2024.
The proposed improvements will require traffic to be reduced to one lane during construction, with flaggers or temporary signals used throughout the project area for the duration of the project. Access for local residences and the Mahaney Recreation Area will be maintained throughout construction.
