Road projects for 2019 discussed
While work on some road projects wrapped up in the old year, planning for improvements is under way for the new year.
At a December 17 meeting, Rossford City Councilman Robert Ruse said the public works committee, which he chairs, is overseeing a number of projects.
He updated council on the status of the work:
State Route 65–the major paving project that disrupted the downtown area for most of 2018, is complete.
There was $1.489 million budgeted, and expenses totaled $1.455 million, he said, adding “that was about $30,000 under budget.”
Eagle Point Colony– Discussion continued on refining plans for paving and storm sewer work.
“We are close to finalizing design parameters including sidewalk and tree replacement,” Councilman Ruse explained.
The committee is examining the cost of the storm sewer along Forest Drive compared to the estimated $30,000 to just clean and inspect the lines via video, not replacing them at this time.
An additional December meeting was planned with two contractors to hear their ideas on logistics.
City officials plan to bid the Colony project in early 2019, he said.
