Joe Short, president of the German Township Trustees, said the first phase of the two-year project to reconstruct Co. Rd. B between Co. Rds. 20-2 and 21 is nearly ready for bids.
The first phase will be to recontour the drainage ditches on the south side of the road, replacing the deep ditches with eight-inch tile to improve drainage.
The second phase is to resurface the road.
Grant money is available for that portion of the project.
Short said the trustees were considering boring under seven residential driveways to install the tile, but a representative of a directional boring company said boring would not be feasible.
Work on the project might start in late fall.
