City Parking Lot 2 – update

Work continues in City Parking Lot 2.  Shelly Company has finished repaving the parking lot and the necessary treatment to the pavement has been applied.  The treatment requires a four day period to settle before traffic or striping may occur.  Striping is scheduled to begin on July 21 and the parking lot is on track to re-open by the end of the day on July 22.  This is all dependent on the weather.

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