Road construction season is already underway in Galion and the Church Street overpass is the next major project for 2016. The overpass will receive a complete resurfacing of the asphalt overlay and approach slabs. The concrete sidewalks will be repaired and drainage will be improved as well.
The overpass will be closed to traffic beginning April 4.
The Galion Police and Fire departments are working closely with the project contractor to ensure there is access for emergency vehicles. The alleys flanking the overpass are expected to remain open, but drivers and pedestrians should watch for temporarily blocked-off sections within the work site.
Crawford Construction Company was awarded the bid for the project, in the amount of $295,542. The Ohio Public Works Commission’s portion of the cost is $132,500.
Estimated completion date is May 31, weather permitting.
