Bob Seaman, village engineer, said the Lindau Street reconstruction project continues to proceed smoothly.
Crews are in the process of building new curb-and-gutter streets 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.
Construction of new underground utilities was finished before the start of the street work.
Currently, construction crews are excavating in preparation for new streets. Seaman said he anticipates excavation work will be finished this week.
The next step will be the building of the stone roadbed, which is anticipated to start late this week.
There is no firm schedule, but Seaman said he expects the next part of the job, the construction of concrete curbs, will start next week.
After the curbs are completed, workers will begin laying asphalt for the new streets.
Miller Bros. Construction, Archbold, is the contractor on the project. After village council approved the first change order at its Aug. 5 meeting, the current cost is about $660,000.
The contract with Miller Bros.calls for the reconstruction of the streets in the neighborhood to be finished by Oct. 1. Seaman said crews should have the job completed well before then.
“I would anticipate it will be done by mid-September,” Seaman said.
