During the work, traffic will be maintained along Lyons and Ohio 741, but it will be shifted away from construction zones for the safety of workers and the public, according to the township.
“We certainly appreciate the public’s patience with some of the traffic delays and some issues,” Snyder said. “But we should see a lot of improvement over the next month and half and certainly a vast improvement for the pedestrians once that project is completed.”

Specific work, according to the township, includes:
•A 10-feet wide asphalt walk along the south side of Lyons from Byers, excluding the bridge;
•A 14-feet wide path along the south side of the Lyons bridge over I-75 will allow for a barrier across the bridge;
•An eight-feet wide concrete walk along the west side of Ohio 741 from Lyons to connect to an existing walk to allow for safer pedestrian access, and
•Curbs and gutters;
Lyons also is being resurfaced within the project limits, excluding the bridge.
