Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will be paving U.S. 50 (Main Street) through the city of Hillsboro, from the western corporation limit near Fenner Road to the eastern corporation limit at Woodlawn Drive.

Sign installation and preliminary work to include pavement repairs is beginning this week, and throughout construction, traffic will be maintained by flaggers when crews are at work.
