Mentor Avenue Widening
This project will widen Mentor Avenue from Center Street to Hart Street with construction of a 2-way left turn lane. Work will commence this week despite utility conflicts to keep the project moving forward. The roadway will be restriped this week to four 10 ½’ lanes. It is anticipated that one lane will be closed during work activity. A minimum of one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction at all times. A majority of the work on the north side of Mentor Avenue is anticipated to occur this construction season. Areas where utility conflicts remain will be completed in the spring. Work will then commence on the south side of Mentor Avenue. Widening work is expected to be complete by June 2018.

Plaza Boulevard Extension
All of the work outside the railroad right-of-way has been completed. Work within railroad right-of-way is expected to be completed by January 2018.

Marigold Road Improvement. 
This project will reconstruct Marigold Road from Woodridge Lane to Lake Overlook Drive and is scheduled to be completed late summer 2018. More Info.
