Paving on Broad Street and Lake Road is still in progress, officials said after council members shared concerns from the public about aspects of the project.

Citizens reached out to Ward 2 Councilperson Terry Moisio, to ask about grinding that had taken place on the newly resurfaced Broad Street and Lake Road, Moisio said at Monday night’s council meeting.

“Some people were kind of upset because it’s new pavement and they saw that it had been grounded,” Moisio said.

ODOT uses a process called micro-milling to remove high spots or areas where water won’t drain, said City Manager Jim Hockaday. The milling is ODOT’s standard, and not the city’s.

Similar work was done on Route 20 in front of Ashtabula Towne Square.

The project is still awaiting manhole adjustments, which are expected to be done in September, Hockaday said. Thirty manholes require adjustments, which are expected to take several weeks. 

The expected finish date is the end of October, he said.

Conneaut is also waiting on a price for improvements to a section of road in front of the school on Chestnut Street. The city has been working with the schools to improve traffic flow on Chestnut Street. The price for the changed plans is expected by the end of the week, Hockaday said.

The city started work earlier this summer on paving Middle Road and Chestnut Street.
