2018 Urban Paving Program

The 2018 Urban Paving Program is a repair and resurfacing project along 3.46 miles of Route 4 from Seward Road to the northern corporation limit. Curb and base failure repairs will be made, while a new surface course, thermoplastic pavement markings, and raised pavement markers will be installed the length of the work limits. The existing pavement is beyond its useful life. $1,842,684.63 of the cost was covered by a grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation.
