State Route 73 Water Main Installation

City staff is in the process of installing and testing the new water main on SR 73 (Oxford Trenton Rd.).  This project replaces an old water main that was not in the public right of way between the Springwood Subdivision and Retreat Lane.


Covered Bridge Repairs

This project is complete and the bridge is open to pedestrians and bicyclists.

Decayed wood support posts are being replaced on the covered bridge at the end of Corso Road.  Timber Frame Reclaim is working as water levels allow.  The bridge, which connects to the OATS trail, is temporarily closed to pedestrians and bicyclists for this project.



Annual Street Resurfacing to Begin

This project is complete.
This project will begin August 12, 2019 on Campus Avenue (Chestnut St. to High St.).
Traffic will be maintained except for Wednesday, August 14th.  There will be no driveway access or parking lot access on this day, weather dependent.
City Council awarded a contract to Barrett Paving for the 2019 Street Resurfacing Project.
