The bridge on Ravenna Rd. is still there. Also, before a reconstruction in
1995, OH 84 coming from the west curved north and met old 44 almost as a
merge, then immediately turned right. To make matters worse, while the
southbound, eastbound, and westbound approaches had a stop sign, the
northbound approach had nothing. (Northbound traffic could not see the
intersection approaching, and likewise, none of the three other directions
could see traffic approaching from the south.) Now the intersection is
closer to a 90-degree angle intersection, an has a traffic light.
