$1.3 million Klingler Road improvement project goes to Bluffton Paving Co.

By Monty Siekerman
The Bluffton Paving Co., bid of $1.3 million for the Klingler Road improvement project was accepted by Ada village council Tuesday night. The Bluffton firm was the lowest of eight bids.

The road improvement will extend from the railroad tracks south to Lima Avenue, about half a mile in length. The old surface will be taken up and the new road will be wider, going from the present 19 foot width to 28 feet.

The project calls for curbing and storm sewer modifications, including a retention basin.
A sidewalk will be installed on the west side for the entire length of the new roadway. Lighting will be added, as well.

Special Ada council meeting March 10

David Retterer, Ada mayor, has called a special meeting of the Ada council for Tuesday, March 10, at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers, with the purposes of considering a resolution and a pay ordinance.
