Vienna sewer project underway

Posted: Updated:

VIENNA TWP., Ohio - A sewer project has begun along Route 193, just one of the first signs that spring has arrived.

Crews spent the first day on the job chopping trees in their path to make way for the fourth phase of sewer lines. The installation should cover an almost two mile stretch from Squaw Creek Country Club to Warren-Sharon Road.

Having access to sewer lines means savings in the long run, and not just for homeowners.

Yankee Kitchen spends thousands a year to maintain its septic system. "Having to deal with the septic tank sometimes, regulating it, some of the fees that come along with having a septic, I think it will help out," said Eli Raptis, manager at Yankee Kitchen.

This fourth phase is expected to cost up to $2.6 million and the next phase is already in the planning stages. Phase five could reach and pass the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport.

Trumbull County Sanitary Executive Director Rex Fee says the next round of work could be divided into two projects, it all depends on access to funding. "You've got to back in your grant monies to lower the cost, so that the property owner or business can afford the improvement," Fee said.

Construction along Route 193 could last into the fall. Once the roadside work reaches the two lane portion of the roadway, Fee says motorists could see lane restrictions. The new lines could prove they're the missing link to economic activity.

County Commissioner Frank Fuda says sewer access is expected attract new eateries and businesses to the area. Details on the restaurants and businesses interested in moving in are not available at this time.
