Tiffin Gets Grant For Streetscape Project

7/5/17 – 5:31 A.M.

Tiffin is getting a grant to help fund a downtown streetscape project. The city says ODOT’s Small Cities Program is paying $1.6 million toward the project. That covers 95 percent of the cost.

Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz says the project includes road reconstruction, new curbs, sidewalks, and lighting on about 2,000 feet of Miami Street. The impacted area stretches from Nelson Street to just east of Clay Street. Tiffin University is pitching in for the project as well. The school is helping pay for the costs of non-grant items like decorative lighting and textured crosswalks.

Officials could award a contract for the work by next June.
