Paving Update

  • Napoleon Road: concrete work has been completed.  The final paving and striping is planned to occur in conjunction with the Conneaut Avenue paving.
  • Conneaut Avenue: concrete and drainage work will begin next week, starting at the west end and moving east.  Once concrete work has been completed through the Wintergarden intersection, the paving contractor will mill the asphalt from Wintergarden to Mitchell Road.  That work is anticipated to last two days.  The trench along Conneaut from the waterline project will be repaired once milling is complete.  The paving of the portion of Conneaut from Wintergarden to Grove Street will follow with an anticipated start date around the first week of August.

All work and the timeline described above are contingent upon weather and progress of work.  Questions about this should be directed to the Engineering Division at 419-354-6227.
