Road work wrapping up in Sylvania

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

A major road is open again in Sylvania after weeks of construction. Work began on Erie Street, between Little Farms Court and Little Street in July.

As construction wraps up and the road reopens, residents in the area say they're relieved. Those who live in Centennial Farms say their neighborhood was used as a quick detour for motorists during construction.

Ed Kaser has lived in the neighborhood for almost 20 years and says he's never seen that much traffic.

"We have maybe two or three cars go down the street," he said. "[During construction, it was] a couple hundred, so it was hard to back out of your driveway sometimes."

Kaser says the bridge was in bad shape and needed fixed, but he's glad it's done. Shoulder work is still being completed on the bridge, but both lanes of the road are open. Construction on Monroe Street is expected to wrap up at the end of the month.
