Full-steam ahead with road work

The second time around appeared to be the charm.

The local company Buckeye Excavating submitted bids on a pair of Norwalk construction projects.

The Wooster-Marshall sewer separation project and phase five of the East Main Street improvements were without bids until last week.

"We will review these bid submittals and award the bids in a week or so," said Josh Snyder, public works director.

"One of the bids was under the engineer's estimate while the other was within 10 percent," Snyder said.

Snyder said the city residents understand the need for the ongoing construction projects.

The actual widening of the intersection of Benedict Avenue and Elm Street began Monday. Before that, much utility work had taken place in preparation for the work.

"They were hoping to finish one of the catch basins today," Snyder said.

The U.S. 250 resurfacing project will continue through August. "They are moving along," Snyder said.
