A large-scale paving project — called one of the largest in the village’s history — will commence in Greenfield on Wednesday, June 21, according to city manager Ron Coffey.

Coffey said that earlier this year, Greenfield Village Council awarded bids to Cox Paving, and following consultation with public service director Brian Smith, the paving company announced plans for milling the streets beginning on June 21, with paving to begin the following day.

Plans call for the work to be done in this order:

* North Second Street: 200, 300 and 400 blocks.

* North Street: 100 and 200 blocks.

* North Street: 300 and 400 blocks.

* North Fifth Street: 100, 200 and 300 blocks.

* Lafayette Street: 100, 200, 300 and 400 blocks.

* North Second Street: 100 block.

* North Street: 600 block.

* Cemetery: south side.

Cox Paving estimates the work will be completed in approximately one week, but weather conditions could affect the timetable, said Coffey.

“No Parking” signs will be posted and some streets may be closed during the construction process, according to Smith.

“This project represents one of the larger – if not the largest – local paving efforts in Greenfield’s history,” Coffey said. “In addition, we thank the Ohio Department of Transportation and their contractor, the Shelly Company, for the nice paving work done on Jefferson Street this month.”

Greenfield Village Council awarded bids for $333,486.56 in April for the work that will be done by Cox Paving.

Another, separate project for paving of Massie Street will take place later this year.
