The 2nd phase of Safe Routes to School sidewalk improvement project is scheduled to start on Monday September 19, 2016, weather permitting.  Vern Nagel, Inc. on Napoleon, Ohio is the contractor awarded the sidewalk bid.  The Ohio Department of Transportation awarded the Village of Antwerp grant dollars to complete new sidewalks on E. Canal from Kroos Drive to Harrmann Road and Harrmann Road into Antwerp School Property.  The sidewalk will be located on the north side of E. Canal and on the west side of S. Harrmann Road.

Project completion date is October 31, 2016.  The contractors will work Monday through Fridays, 10 hour days.  Traffic is to be maintained at all times except when construction of sidewalks near the edge of pavement will require a single lane and a flagger will be required.  Driveway closures will be minimized and a 24 hour notice to the owners affected will be required.

ODOT will be providing inspection of the project and will have staff on site during construction.  If property owners in the affected project area have any questions or concerns, please contact the Village Administrator at 419-258-2371.

The Village would ask for patience and cooperation during the construction of these new sidewalks.  We have waited many years to finally have this new walkway to the school completed which will provide a safe route for residents to not only get to school but connect Main Street and the downtown area to the east side of town.
