Meridian Road drivers urged to 'be patient'

Posted: Updated:
MAHONING COUNTY, Ohio -

As work continues on the resurfacing of Meridian Road, Mahoning county Commissioners Thursday approved the contract for Phase III of the project.

Phase III is a $1.5 million contract for the area between Cornersburg and Mahoning Avenue.  It will begin while Phase I is still being completed. 

"It's going to be a lot congestion and a lot of delays, so we just ask if people could be patient during the construction. Drive a little slower because there's going to be a lot of people working on the road," Mahoning County Engineer Pat Ginnetti said.

The total $10 million project is 80% funded by federal grants.
