What's happening with Parkland Drive?

I'm interested in the ongoing construction work that's occurring in this area. Can you fill me in? Nancy in Perkins Township.

Perkins Township highway superintendent Eric Dodrill provided the following response:

"We are replacing drainage basins at the corner of Parkland Drive and Marrisee Drive. We plan to start the project in the next week and the cost will be approximately $1,000. This work will be done by our crew and is part of our normal maintenance program for our aging infrastructure.

"We are not aware of any other work being performed on Parkland at this time," Dodrill added.
