SALEM -- The city has several construction projects now under way or about to begin.

Crews are to start Monday on a street repair and resurfacing effort that will cost about $151,400.

Money for it will come from federal Community Development Block Grant funds.

Parts of North Ellsworth, Lundy and Broadway avenues, and East Fifth and East Third streets will be affected by the project.

The work, being performed by Angelo Benedetti Inc. of Bedford, Ohio, is expected to last until about mid-August.

Parking will be banned on streets affected by the construction.

Crews started earlier this week replacing the sanitary sewer that serves a section of Aetna Street between Lundy and Homewood avenues.

The $54,550 project is necessary to replace crumbling sewer lines, utilities Superintendent Don Weingart explained.

The city is paying for the project using sewer fund money.

Hippley Construction of Lisbon is doing the work, which is expected to take about three more weeks to complete.

New roof

City Hall is undergoing repairs.

Workers from Boak & amp; Sons Inc. of Youngstown are installing a new roof on the 1950 building, located near the intersection of South Broadway Avenue and West Pershing Street.

A new roof is needed to stop the leaks that have been affecting the mayor's office, city council chambers and a conference room, Mayor Larry DeJane said.

To avoid future problems, a rubberized coating is being installed over a material that will alter the shape of the roof from being entirely flat. The new shape will allow water to drain more easily, DeJane explained.

Cost of the project is about $35,000.

The city is using money from its capital improvement fund to pay for the repair.
