Sandusky to be resurfaced


 

Sandusky Street, from William Street to Belle Avenue, will be resurfaced starting Monday, July 20, and is to be completed before the start of school, say Delaware city officials.

General work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., although portions of Sandusky Street will be paved at night to avoid traffic congestion. Traffic will be maintained and signage will assist motorists through the work area.

Sandusky Street work should be completed by Aug. 8. Work has been scheduled to avoid conflicts with the July 25 “Blast from the Past” car show.

Crews first will make base repairs where needed in advance of full-width, curb-to-curb resurfacing. Beginning around the week of July 27, existing pavement will be removed by a grinding machine. Several days later, new pavement will be put down with a paving machine.

Also scheduled for resurfacing is Olentangy Avenue, beginning in mid-August. After Olentangy is complete, crews will proceed to King Avenue, John Street and Weiser Avenue.

The total program cost is $1.16 million The city was able to obtain about $480,000 in grants to put toward the total. The general contractor is Strawser Paving.
