Major street work

SR 235 and SR 309 become one-lane at times

Two major Ada streets are involved in major pavement repairs this week.

The project also includes installation of curb ramps and concrete sidewalks within the village of Ada.

On South Main the grinding takes the street down to the former brick Main Street of a century ago. A photo below reveals about 6 inches of pavement laid over the years since the street was bricked.

The streets are:
• State Route 81 between the western village limits and Township Road 55
• State Route 235 between the northern village limits and State Route 309

The work has turned much of Main Street into a one-lane roadway.
