DELPHOS — The Shelly Company will finish the East Second Street paving project on Monday. The work will complete a five-year plan to refurbish Second Street from Main to Douglas streets and Elida Avenue to Elida Road.
Second Street was milled earlier in the week and Shelly began laying the asphalt Friday and will finish at the beginning of the week.
This portion of the plan was funded with a $151,006 grant from the Ohio Public Works Commission with the city’s contribution $37,750, or 20 percent of the project.
“The Elida Avenue widening portion of the project was completed in August 2012 by Bluffton Paving and included the widening and paving of Elida Avenue from Summers Lane east to the corporation limits. The cost was $212,592.45, slightly more than budgeted,” Mayor Michael Gallmeier said Friday.
