Earlier in March, 21 News reported on an ongoing project in Warren to replace old main waterlines in the city. Now, 21 News caught up with the city's utilities director to see how things are going.

Warren Utilities Director Franco Lucarelli tells 21 News that the project has been moving along very nicely so far and traffic congestion and disruptions have been minimal, especially for a project of this size and scale.

We're told upgrades on Mahoning Avenue, which is just one piece of this project is expected to take about six to eight more weeks for completion weather permitting.

So far on Mahoning Avenue, 15 lead service pipes have been replaced and the majority of the 12-inch water main has been installed.

Lucarelli tells us the cost for Mahoning Avenue alone is around $2.1 million. $360,000 of that will be paid for from grant funding from the state and the rest of the project will be financed through loans from the Ohio EPA and Ohio Water Development Authority.

The cost of the entire project is still unknown, but Lucarelli tells us he expects it to be hundreds of millions of dollars. You can read more about this project in our related coverage below.
