LIMA — The City of Lima will be beginning its paving program Sept. 8 to update roughly five miles of city streets.

City Engineer Kirk Niemeyer said the city’s contractor, Bluffton Paving, will start milling in the southeast corner of Lima, and then move clockwise through the city targeting a number of streets along the way.

Normally, the city’s annual paving projects begin later in the fall, but the city opted to push the project out faster to take advantage of historically cheap asphalt rates and to avoid weather problems the program ran into in past years.

Crews are expected to be finished with the work by Sept. 22.
