Bluffton council gets update on construction

Bluffton council heard updates on several summer projects in the village during Monday’s council meeting.

• The Bluffton in Bloom committee continues working on the yet-to-be named public space in the former Presbyterian Church alley.

An assortment of seats, tables and planters are now in place. Several donations are making the project possible. Those donors include J&D Snyder Excavating, Bluffton Stone Co., Patriot Concrete and Bluffton Presbyterian Church.

• Within the next two weeks Hohenbrink Excavating will finish the West Elm Street project.

• Beaverdam Contracting is over half way completed in switching residential service lines to the new water main on East Jefferson Street. When all lines are connected to the new main, the company will begin capping off the old 4-inch main and will make final connections.

• Eagle Bridge poured the piers on Friday on the Jefferson Street bridge project. The recent high water has delayed the project.

•Schimmoeller Construction requested a 30-day extension (July 31) for substantial completion and a 90-day (Sept. 29) extension for restoration of the Buckeye restroom.

•Patriot Concrete has poured 13 of the 26 curb ramps for this year’s curb ramp project. The company has until Oct. 1 to complete this year’s ramp list.

• Bluffton public works employees began installation of 142 street signs this week. The project takes place thanks to a grant received by the Richland Township trustees.
