Kresge Drive widen­ing be­gan at night

The Morning Journal (Lorain, OH) - - ICYMI -

Amherst Mayor Mark Cos­tilow said night work to widen Kresge Drive started im­me­di­ately af­ter the Sept. 11 City Coun­cil meet­ing.

Coun­cil ap­proved adding $19,000 to a con­tract amount of $134,241 to D.L. Smith Paving at 585 Old State Road in Nor­walk to pay for night con­struc­tion in the busi­ness district north of state Route 2.

The work at night is in­tended to re­duce neg­a­tive im­pact of road work on busi­nesses in the project area, Cos­tilow said.

The or­di­nance was passed as emer­gency leg­is­la­tion be­cause the bid al­ready was awarded and the next steps of the project be­gan, he said.

The sec­tion of Kresge is in front of a small shopping plaza that houses an Aldi gro­cery store and other shops, said Safety-Ser­vice Di­rec­tor John Jef­freys.

Sched­uled to end in Novem­ber, Cos­tilow said, the project could be com­plete in as lit­tle as two weeks.

A con­crete com­pany is stay­ing open at night just for the Amherst project, Cos­tilow told Coun­cil.
