As released this past December, the construction within the downtown area will continue into much of 2019. The completion of the Columbia Gas natural gas line replacement was the first of the underground utilities to be completed in conjunction with the downtown paving project. The next phase of the improvements will include replacing and repairing the water and sewer lines. The project area will encompass Main Street, from Oak to Ordway, and Wooster Street, from Prospect to Church.
Construction crews are scheduled to begin mobilizing for this work on February 4. The project will begin on South Main, specifically near Lehman and Ordway. While this work occurs, traffic will be impacted and detours will likely be necessary.
The utility portion of this project is anticipated to last through the spring of 2019. Once complete, a contractor will repave the downtown.
