Arlington Prepares For Main Street Project This Year

2/6/18 – 5:06 A.M.

The Main Street pavement project gets underway later this year in Arlington. That’s according to Mayor Michael Palmer, who gave the state-of-the-village address Monday night. The Courier reports the first phase of the three-phase project is ready to go once construction season begins.

Palmer also told council that ODOT has moved the second phase of the project up. ODOT now says they’ll start the second part in 2019 rather than in 2020.

Councilman Brian Essinger says they’ll maintain traffic on Main Street during the work. He also cautioned that the work will be dusty, dirty, and stony.

U.S. 68 doubles as Main Street in Arlington. Officials have pushed for major repairs to the road for years.
