Road work starts Monday

By By BEN RAYMOND LODE / Niles Daily Star
NILES -- The city of Niles is undertaking road improvement work starting Monday Sept. 29, on a one mile stretch of 17th Street from East Main Street north to Eagle Street.
Neil Coulston, the city's public works director, said the $295,000 project includes storm sewer work and an addition of a left turn lane at the south end of Silverbrook Avenue to East Main Street, north to Eagle Street.
It also includes cold milling existing pavement, construction of asphalt roll-type curbs, pavement resurfacing and other related work, he said.
Although traffic is expected to be maintained at all times, motorists are encouraged to use caution while travelling through the construction zone, he said.
Motorists should also expect some delays while the work is being done, he said.
Coulston encourages those who typically travel the stretch of road on which improvements are made, if possible, to seek out alternative routes to avoid traffic pile-ups.
He expects the project to be completed by mid-November.
Northern Construction Services Corporation of Niles is the general contractor on the project, which is being paid for from federal and local funds.
Coulston said the road improvement project is the last road project to be started before the winter.
Citizens with questions about the project may contact Neil Coulston, public works director or Joe Ray, assistant public works director at 683-4700 for more information.
