Leetonia to begin work on waterline
LEETONIA -- The city will begin construction Monday on a 12-inch waterline running underneath Chestnut Street.
The line, which also will burrow underneath railroad tracks on the street, will supply better water volume and pressure to the south side of Leetonia, said village Administrator Gary Phillips.
He cautioned motorists to be aware of the construction, which should last about two weeks.
"Motorists should watch out for excavating equipment and individual workers in the area," Phillips said.
He advised motorists to use the nearby Walnut Street or Washington Street crossings during construction.
"We will still try to maintain traffic on Chestnut," he said. "Depending on weather, the construction will last from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m."
The workers will not have to dig up the tracks, Phillips said, because the waterline will be sent through a steel casing 5 feet below ground.
