LIMA — A section of Bellefontaine Avenue will be closed Sept. 3 through 9 for work on the Indiana and Ohio Railway system. Signed detours will be available on Roberts Avenue, Reservoir Road and Kibby Street.
In addition to the closure, City Engineer Kirk Niemeyer shared an update on the first phase of the Melrose Drainage Project. Niemeyer said the pipes have been installed, and the city is about halfway done removing the 11,000 cubic yards of dirt creating the stormwater detention basin.
The estimated completion date of phase one is the end of September. Two additional phases will follow to complete the stormwater removal system that exits the city.
