The Summer months provide the opportunity for many city improvements.
Tomorrow Zanesville will begin a two-month-long paving project. The project is funded completely through stimulus money and includes Ridge Avenue, Dryden, Pershing, and Dresden Roads.
"The first things they’ll do is about two to three weeks of handicap ramp improvements. All four of the streets that have handicap-accessible ramps that don’t meet the state code will be brought up to code as a part of the project," says Public Services Director Mike Sims.
They will then replace the top two inches of asphalt from the roadways.
Another project to watch for is a new pumping system at Zane Landing Park that will make getting rid of sewage from boats easier for boat-owners.
"So we’ve set up a pumping facility out at Zane Landing. It’s free, it does require a token," says Sims.
Sims says that tokens can be picked up from City Hall, Terry’s Tavern, Kirkbride Marine, and boat clubs. The pumping facility will be in place by the weekend.
