Last summer, paving on Monroe Street caused heartburn for Sylvania motorists.
This year, bridge re-decking on Main Street will be the city s primary traffic obstacle.
Starting Wednesday, Main will be one-way northbound between Monroe and Ravine Drive while the Ten Mile Creek bridge is renovated, said Jeff Ballmer, Sylvania s
service director. Southbound traffic will be detoured via Monroe, Harroun, and Brint roads.
The $755,000 project, to be done by Fort Defi ance Construction of Defiance, Ohio, is scheduled for Nov. 4 completion. While the bridge deck will be replaced one half at a time, the one-way, northbound traffic pattern will remain in place for the entire
project, Mr. Ballmer said.
Along with the structural work, decorative light pilasters will be added on each of the bridge s four corners to improve its appearance, the service director said.
