New sidewalks coming to Girard
GIRARD — By the start of the new school year, city council plans to have sidewalks installed along the east side of Shannon Road from Beaver Avenue, which is the entrance of the junior and senior high school, to the northern end of Dravis Avenue at Park Avenue.
Council approved a resolution to advertise for bids for a joint project with the Trumbull County commissioners at a meeting tonight.
The estimated cost of the work is $112,198, which includes a signalized crosswalk at the intersection of Beaver and Shannon Road.
The sidewalk portion in nearby Liberty Township will be funded by the Girard schools at a cost of $59,490, and the portion of the project within the city will be paid for by the street department fund at a cost of $52,708.
