Work continues at Overland Industrial Park

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

More progress is being made in the slow but steady transformation of the former Jeep Parkway site.

Over the past three years, the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority has worked to redevelop the site, now called the Overland Industrial Park.

Construction crews are currently installing water and sewer lines and getting ready to pave a new access road. The port has a commitment from AirGas to build a new regional headquarters there, as well as a commitment to build a spec building aimed at attracting a manufacturing operation.

Port Authority President Paul Toth says the redevelopment project is important to the community, to show new life at the former Jeep site.

"We've done the environmental remediation. We've removed a hundred years worth of foundations and building slabs," Toth said. "What we're accomplishing today is putting the new access road in, new water, sewer, gas, electric, all utilities needed to get the site ready for private development."

Toth says vertical construction is expected to start in the very near future.
