The final coat of asphalt on the three streets that were rebuilt this construction season is scheduled to be laid on Thursday, Sept. 12.

Bob Seaman, Archbold village engineer, said concrete sidewalks and driveway approaches on the Lindau Street project were finished Monday, Sept. 9.

Crews have begun work on restoring the topsoil and seeding.

Once the final coat of asphalt is down, the project will not be finished, but most of the work will be complete.

Seaman said construction workers will continue restoring the topsoil, seeding, and mulching.

Also, manholes will have to be adjusted to bring them to grade level.

He explained when paving is done, the manholes are paved over. Workers go back later, uncover the manholes, and adjust them so they are level with the street.

New curb-and-gutter streets were built on Lindau Street from Short-Buehrer Road to Schlatter Street, West Lugbill Road from Buehrer Street to 150 feet west of Lindau Street, and Schlatter Street at the Lindau Street intersection.

Along with new streets, new underground utilities were added.

Miller Bros. Construction, Archbold, was the contractor. The cost to rebuild the street is about $660,000.
