Vandalia to start $840K road construction work Monday

The project to reconstruct Foley Drive in Vandalia at a cost of $841,000 starts Monday, weather permitting.

The work will be a total rebuild of Foley Drive and will consist of replacing water lines, sewer lines, gravel base, catch basins, curbs and driveway approaches.

The road will be closed to through traffic during the construction from Bristol Drive to National Road. Those who wish to get to a destination located within the work zone can do so.

A grant from the Ohio Public Works Commission will cover $400,000, and the city will cover the remaining $441,000.

C.G. Construction and Utilities, based out of Miamisburg, is the contractor.

“We anticipate this project will be completed by the end of June,” Communications Manager Rich Hopkins said.

Vandalia officials asks residents to avoid Foley Drive for the safety of work crews and motorists. They would like drivers to access the neighborhood from Brown School Road.

Officials also ask residents to avoid parking on the street of the construction zone to minimize damage and delays.

The city has two other big road projects this year. National Road through Vandalia and Northwoods Boulevard will be resurfaced.
