If you frequently drive around Marathon Petroleum in downtown Findlay, your route may be changing soon. Marathon is asking the city's permission to take over a few streets as it works to expand its headquarters.
City leaders say Marathon is, in essence, "buying" these roads. The company is hoping to close East Hardin Street from South Main Street to East Street, as well as Beech Avenue and an alley nearby. It's all part of the company's $80 million expansion project.
If Marathon is granted its request, the company would also be in charge of the roads' maintenance, potentially saving the city money.
"People will still be able to enter and exit Hardin Street. Marathon is still going to utilize that, per the plans that we have now, as their front door. It will be 'open' to traffic, 'vacated' from a legal perspective," explained Paul Schmelzer, safety service director for Findlay.
Marathon wants to temporarily close part of East Street through the end of the year and remove all two-hour parking limits around its building.
The traffic commission is in favor of these requests, but now it's up to City Council whether or not to approve it.
