Construction Update – Downtown Utility Project

The downtown utility project continues to progress north along Main Street with the installation of a new waterline.  To date, the project has progressed past the Clough intersection.  Beginning Monday, March 18, the focus will be on the intersection of Main and Wooster.  In order to expedite the work within the intersection, the contractor will close the intersection to traffic at 7:00 am on Monday, March 18.  This closure will remain in effect through Friday, March 22, potentially into Saturday, March 23.  The closure is required in order to install new water lines and sewer lines on Main Street and Wooster Street.

The utility portion of this project is anticipated to last through the spring of 2019.  Once complete, a contractor will repave the downtown.

Questions about this may be directed to the Engineering Division at 419-354-6227.
