State Route 81 / Thayer Road Intersection Improvements


Below is communication received from the Ohio Department of Transportation:

The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 1 is moving forward with plans to make travel in the city of Lima and Allen County safer. ODOT has finalized the selection of the preferred alternative to be a single-lane roundabout for the State Route 81 and Thayer Road Intersection Safety Project. 

During two public meetings, held in September, the roundabout was presented as the recommended alternative for the intersection. The decision was made after ODOT and its consultant, WSP USA, gathered feedback on the alternatives during stakeholder meetings and the public meetings. According to crash data, 26 crashes occurred at the intersection of SR 81 and Thayer Road between 2020 and 2022. 35% of those crashes caused injuries. 

The roundabout will be placed at the current intersection location. Construction is tentatively scheduled for late Summer 2025.
