Mill Street "AKA Middleport Hill" Slip Repair Update

The long awaited Mill Street "AKA Middleport Hill" Slip Repair Project has been awarded to Tucson Construction located in New Philadelphia, OH. During a pre-construction meeting on February 9, 2021 with ODOT and Tucson Construction a tenative date for completion of the repairs is May 1, 2021. The Village has been working with ODOT, FHWA, OPWC and Burgess & Niple since February of 2019 to secure funding and to create a design for the repairs. There is one more structure scheduled for demolition on Brownell Ave. before construction can begin. With that being said, make preparations now to use an alternate route durning the months of March and April 2021, due to a complete road closure. In the past there have been issues with barricades and road closed signs being moved, removed and even ran over by motorists. Please obey all signage during the construction phase and do not attempt to breech the construction zone. You are only putting the safety of yourself, motorists and construction crews at risk. We ask for your cooperation during the next several months.  Everyone including the Village Officials are ready to see this project completed.
