Three major infrastructure projects planned in Ada this year

By Monty Siekerman

Three infrastructure projects are planned for Ada this year. They are:

Klingler Road Improvement
This will be similar to recent work done on Lima Avenue and Lincoln Avenue with new pavement, gutters, and curbs. The old pavement will be removed, replaced by a new 28-foot wide road from the railroad tracks south to Lima Avenue. Lighting will be installed, and a sidewalk will be constructed on the west side.

• Cost estimate: $1.2 million

How Funded: Ohio Dept. of Transportation grant. The Village cost is only $100,000.
