- KENTUCKY AVENUE WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT
- R. Zeiler Excavating of Temperance has begun work for the replacement of existing water main with new 20” diameter pipe on Kentucky Avenue between First and Fourth Streets. For the most part, the roadway will be completely closed to all but local access as the work progresses. Following water main replacement, the roadway pavement will be completely reconstructed. Water main work is expected to last through approximately the end of April.
- TERNES DRIVE RECONSTRUCTION
Smith Paving and Excavating of Norwalk, Ohio was the low bidder on the City’s 2017 Concrete Paving Program, which will include work in 8 different locations this season. Their first project, which is expected to commence this coming week, is the reconstruction of Ternes Drive from North Dixie Highway to approximately 1000 feet south. During construction, access will be maintained to all adjacent businesses, and either northbound or southbound traffic will be detoured depending on the half of the roadway being worked on. The detour route will utilize North Dixie Highway, Detroit Avenue, and Rose Street. As construction must be staged for maintenance of traffic, work may be occurring until the end of April.
