Maumee approves traffic study for uptown
Maumee City Council approved a traffic study Monday night for one of the busiest parts of the city.
A contract was approved with DGL Consulting Engineers to perform the study in various portions of the Uptown district. The cost is not to exceed $99,541.
The vote was 6-0 with Councilman Brent Buehrer abstaining because of a conflict of interest.
The public service department concluded in May a traffic study would be beneficial, and proposals have been sent to engineering firms for consideration. The study would examine traffic along Conant Street from the Anthony Wayne Trail to Broadway Street, and Gibbs Street to Allen Street.
Public Service Director Joe Camp met in August with several business owners in the affected areas to gather their suggestions and concerns. Nancy Gagnet, president of the Maumee Uptown Business Association, previously told The Blade a traffic study would “absolutely be a good idea.”
Mr. Camp said the city would like experts to evaluate the current parking inventory, and look at occupancy on an hourly basis for city-owned and maintained lots. He hopes to have preliminary results before the end of the year.
Monnette’s Market purchasing land in the 200 block of Conant for a new store is one of the driving forces behind the study. Monnette’s general manager Kyle Ryan said it recently received approval for on-street parking and a curb cut, which should help traffic flow.
Plans call for the new store to be open by next spring or summer.
