Washingtonville road work

Steve Houlette was taking the covers off detour signs near the state Route 14 and Washingtonville Street intersection on Tuesday afternoon. Houlette, from Leetonia, is employed by R.T. Vernal Paving Co. of North Lima which is the prime contractor on the $901,744 project that will include aligning Washingtonville Road with East Street, which are opposite of each other, while widening state Route 14. A traffic signal will also be installed. R.T. Vernal was performing road maintenance at the site and the project is expected to be completed in the fall. This view is looking east on state Route 14.
