Q: What's new on the Venice Road overpass? It was supposed to start in July and I haven't heard anything. I would just like an update on this. — Carrie on Venice Road
A: Hello Carrie, good question. I talked to Todd Roth, engineering supervisor for the city of Sandusky and he told me that the city is currently going over the construction contract for the Venice Road overpass. They hope to award it to a contractor in August. If that goes according to plan, the construction phase is expected to begin in August, though nothing is written in stone, Roth cautioned. We'll be sure to keep readers posted on what's going on with this long-anticipated project as it moves forward.
