  • ODOT finds most dangerous intersections
    A new ODOT study says the five-way intersection at East 55th Street, Woodland and Kinsman in Cleveland is the most dangerous urban intersection in five counties. The second most dangerous crossing is at Mentor Avenue, Broadmoor Road and Reynolds Road in Mentor. The report is based on the number of crashes from 2010 to 2012 in Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain and Medina counties. Among rural roads, ODOT says the Granger Township intersection at Ridge and Medina roads is most dangerous. The department uses the data to find sites that could be made safer. Each year, cities can apply for grant money for the projects. Over the past two years, ODOT has allocated $204 million for traffic projects, with about $80 million of that coming from the federal government.

    Asian Carp report
    A report -- seven years in the making -- on how to contain Asian Carp is coming January 6. 
    The ravenous Asian Carp could destroy the $7 billion Great Lakes fishing industry, and the Army Corps of Engineers has been studying the issue as Asian Carp DNA has been found around the lakes. 
    The Detroit Free Press says the report will contain eight suggestions on how to manage the spread of the carp. That could include permanently separating the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal from Lake Michigan, which is a key pathway for the carp.
    Earlier this month, the Army Corps said an electric barrier on the Chicago waterway can be circumvented by fish swimming in a ship's wake. Only once have Asian carp been found beyond the barriers -- in Lake Calumet, near Chicago.

    Sports
    In sports, the Cavs fell to the Hawks last night in overtime, 127-125. They head to Boston to take on the Celtics tomorrow night, and will play the Golden State Warriors at home on Sunday.But the Harlem Globetrotters will be at the Q on Saturday; to see a video of Dizzy Grant globetrotting around Cleveland, click here. The 4-11 Browns head to Pittsburgh Sunday to take on the 7-8 Steelers. The two teams met once before this season in late November, when the Steelers won 27-11.
