CIRCLEVILLE – It’s cone season in Downtown Circleville as road crews start work preparing for paving in the downtown Main street area.
Road construction crews are currently working on the ADA ramps in the area of West Main street today. The paving will start Monday, May 3, 2021, and will start at the Western End of Main Street by the railroad tracks. They will pave to Court street in the middle of downtown, then turn North on Court Street to Water Street. Then They will come back to Main Street and Court then move East to Lancaster Pike and Mingo.
Most of the cost of this project will not come from City Budget. According to Public Service Terry Frazier there will be some local funds that will have to be allocated towards the project, including curb ramps, catch basins, and other structures that have to be taken care of prior to the paving, but the resurfacing costs will not comes from Circleville.
Costs to replace items along that corridor would cost the city estimated cost around 150,000 dollars that would come from the street repair budget for 2021.
Watch as Director of Public Service Terry Frazier discusses this opportunity to city council.
