Vandalia officials this year are planning for a major project next year: the resurfacing of one of the city’s major roadways, according to Director of Public Service Rob Cron.

The Ohio Department of Transportation is slated to resurface U.S. 40 from Airport Access Road through downtown and past the dam to the east end of town. The project is set to start in the second half of 2019.

Ahead of that work, the city will be repairing curbs and sidewalks around the street that will be resurfaced. All work will be Americans with Disabilities Act compliant with handicapped-accessible ramps, according to Cron.

The city is in the midst of advertsing for bidders for the project. Bids will open March 13 and will be on the council’s agenda for April 2 to be awarded.

The approximate budget for this project is $225,000, which will include the cost for concrete and the resurfacing of some residential roads this year.

The work schedule should be set in the coming weeks, according to Cron. Property owners will not be billed for work done in front of their homes, he said, because city levies have been approved.
