The Main Street reconstruction project in Clintonville scheduled for this summer won’t begin until June 1.
Interim City Administrator Chuck Kell informed the Clintonville City Council that the designing of the detour for the project will take place June 1.
“There was I believe an environment restriction on the project that they could not start any work around the waterway before June 20, so that’s why that project is not starting until June,” Kell said.
Kell also said that the estimated cost for sanitary sewer and water replacement work for the second phase of the Main Street reconstruction project totaled $954,347.
“It’s going to be a fairly expensive project for the city,” Kell said.
He said the Department of Transportation hasn’t decided when that project will take place. It is scheduled for 2017 but the goal is to have all the plans ready for work to begin in 2016 if there is money available.
If the project is moved up to 2016 Kell said the city will have to make some provisions to have funding available for the project.
“Don’t be surprised if they move that project forward,” Kell said.
He said the gas company has decided it will probably start work this year on the second phase.
