First Street repaving on city’s priority list
Sep 9, 2013 at 2:10 PM
City commissioners are poised to vote at 5 p.m. today at City Hall whether to spend $1.01 million to pave First Street from Cedar Point Drive to Meigs Street.
The cost is down slightly from an estimate earlier this summer.
The project, starting this fall and scheduled to finish in June 2014, will also patch up potholes, upgrade manholes, repair curbs and sidewalks and replace an existing waterline on a portion of First Street’s north side.
“It’s important that this gets replaced,” ex officio mayor John Hamilton said. “Some of the infrastructure in the city is over 100 years old.”
The 1.3-mile corridor serves as a popular passageway for commuters to access Cedar Point, considering about 7,000 vehicles traverse it daily, according to city data.
