The Department of Public Works is currently facilitating the following construction work and services throughout the city. Please scroll down to the map below for further details. 

Cleveland Road Waterline Replacement Project
In conjunction with and prior to the 2024 Cleveland Road Safety Improvement project, the City has contacted with Ed Burdue & Co., LLC of Sandusky, OH to re-align the water mains intersecting at Cleveland Road and Cedar Point Drive to align with the roadway geometry for future maintenance purposes, as the existing water lines are respectively 51 to 64 years old. A construction start date has yet to be established but will be released to the public once known. The construction work in this area is expected to be done prior to the Cedar Point 2024 season.

Warren Street Reconstruction Project
The segment of Warren Street from Water Street to Market Street, then again from Washington Street to East Monroe Street, totaling nearly a half mile in length will see waterline replacement, new fire hydrants, service lines and meters, adding storm sewer, curbing, driveway aprons, a sidewalk along the East side and an asphalt muti-use path on the West side tying Shoreline Park and Huron Park together and installation of new asphalt pavement.

The storm sewer installation is in progress on the west side of the road, near Elm Street. Once the piping installation is completed, underground work will conclude, and Speer Bros. will commence surface work. Please note that all construction activities are weather-dependent.

During working hours, local traffic will be restricted, and all posted road closure signs must be strictly adhered to, particularly between Jefferson and Madison Streets.

The project has been awarded to Speer Bros. of Sandusky, Ohio. As work progresses, more information will be released to the public.

East Water Street Construction 

Wednesday, February 7, 2024 (Sandusky, Ohio) – Construction work on the E. Water St. project commenced this week. The work zone covers E. Water St. from Shoreline Dr./Franklin St. to Meigs St. The road will remain open to two-way traffic, with any necessary closures or traffic modifications to be announced as the project moves forward.

The project aims to upgrade E. Water St. by replacing sections of old asphalt to accommodate extended curbs at intersections. The street will be milled for a new layer of asphalt. A 10-foot-wide asphalt path for pedestrians and cyclists will be built on the road's north side, replacing the temporary on-street section of the Sandusky Bay Pathway. New drainage features like curb inlets, catch basins, manholes, and storm sewer pipes will be added. Concrete curbs, sidewalks, bus stops, and curb replacements will also be installed. ADA-compliant curb ramps will be added, and fresh pavement markings applied.

Construction is expected to finish by mid-May 2024.

The project has been awarded to Great Lakes Demolition Company of Clyde, Ohio.
