Archbold Village Council granted permission to village officials to advertise for bids for the reconstruction of streets in the Lugbill Addition at its Monday, April 1 meeting.
Bob Seaman, Archbold village engineer, told council this will complete street reconstruction and replacement of underground utilities in the neighborhood.
The estimated cost is $670,000.
The project will see new curb-and-gutter streets 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.
The new road will be 24 feet wide. New concrete driveway approaches will be installed at each property that has a driveway.
Also, new concrete pavement will be poured for the perpendicular parking on the east side of Zion Mennonite Church.
There will be new concrete sidewalks on both sides of Lindau Street and on both sides of West Lugbill Road east of Lindau Street.
New water and sewer lines will be installed.
A new 21-inch storm sewer will be installed for West Lugbill Road west on Lindau Street. East of Lindau Street, the storm sewer will be 12 inches.
Houses on Lindau Street that do not have storm sewer connections available will have new taps installed on the existing 42-inch storm sewer.
The existing eight-inch sanitary sewer line will be repaired in the Lindau Street-West Lugbill Road intersection.
A new eight-inch waterline will be built under Lindau Street between West Lugbill Road and Schlatter Street.
Waterlines in parallel alleys will be abandoned in place.
Homes which presently get water service from lines in alleys will have new water services run from the backs of the houses to the new Lindau Street line.
During the construction project, the temporary road that was installed for last year’s street project will be used to allow western Schlatter Street residents to have vehicle access to their homes while the Lindau Street-Schlatter Street intersection is rebuilt.
The temporary road, built out of “grindings,” which is material ground off asphalt streets, connects the western dead ends of Burke and Schlatter streets.
When the current project is complete, the temporary road will be removed, and the area restored.
