Steubenville street work set to start Monday

STEUBENVILLE — City Engineer Michael Dolak announced the city’s Community Development Block Grant-funded street resurfacing program will start at 7 a.m. Monday and continue through the week.

Dolak said the streets to be improved include Logan Street from the east side of the railroad tracks to state Route 7 and then Logan Street to the east dead end, North Court Street from Logan Street to Clinton Street and North Commercial Street from Clinton to Ross streets.

“The initial work will involve the removal of the existing asphalt surface using a cold milling process. Traffic will be maintained with periodic lane restrictions. We are asking motorists to use alternate routes to avoid delays. Following the surface preparation, a hot mix asphalt surface will be applied,” explained Dolak.

Shelly & Sands Inc. of Rayland will be doing the work.

Dolak said the city’s hot mix asphalt resurfacing project will start at 7 a.m. Monday and go throughout the week, weather permitting, on Prospect Avenue.

“The street work on Prospect Avenue is a carryover from the 2016 program. Traffic will be limited on Prospect Avenue. No parking signs will be posted at least one day in advance. If vehicles are left on the street the vehicles will be towed and owners will be responsible for towing and storage fees,” said Dolak.

He noted traffic will be restricted to one lane starting at 7:30 a.m. Monday on Lincoln Boulevard between Lincoln Avenue and Arden Avenue to allow a contractor to perform tree trimming work.

“Motorists can expect periodic delays and should allow extra time for their travels,” stated Dolak.
