Paving projects totaling close to $1 million are set to begin this fall in Trumbull County.

The bid by Shelly and Sands, Inc. to complete the second wave of road construction in the county at $1,093,675 was approved by Trumbull County Commissioners on Wednesday.

The list of county roads includes:

  • Logan Way between state Route 304 in Liberty and Warner Road.
  • Ridge Road from King Graves Road in Vienna south for 3,568 feet.
  • Niles-Warren River Road from DeForest Road in Weathersfield south to the Niles city limits.
  • South Canal Street in Newton Township from Bright Baldwin Road north to the Newton Falls Village limits.
  • Shannon Road from the Girard city limits north to Tibbetts-Wick Road in Liberty.

"Some of these are really in disrepair," said Jack Simon, special projects coordinator with the Trumbull County Engineer's Office.

Simon says his office often fields complaints about the status of Ridge Road.

"This is right where it comes up to King Graves in Vienna. We get a lot of phone calls about this area," he said.

Paving is expected to start in September and wrap up before the end of the year. 

Simon says none of the roads will be completely shut down. His office plans to leave one lane open and will have flaggers on site during construction.

Close to half of the funding will come from the state through the Ohio Public Works Commission. The rest of the project will be paid for through the county engineer's office.
