Sewer project to close another downtown street

Sewer project to close another downtown street

YOUNGSTOWN — A second phase of a major downtown sewer replacement project starts Saturday with lane restrictions followed by total closure to vehicular traffic beginning March 4.

Vehicles will not be allowed on West Commerce Street between Hazel Street and Wick Avenue for about four months after the March 4 closure.

The $1 million storm and sanitary sewer replacement project along Phelps Street between West Federal Street and Lincoln Avenue started Feb. 4.

Meanwhile, the Ohio Department of Transportation will close Elm Street between Saranac Avenue and Tod Lane to vehicular traffic on March 4, the same day the city closes a section of West Commerce, for a $2.3 million project to replace the Elm Street Bridge between those streets.

The project will keep that North Side street closed to motorists through mid-November, according to an ODOT statement.
