Weather permitting, work will begin today on the Lovers Lane and Sunset Boulevard Intersection Improvement Project. This project includes the lengthening of the left turn lane on Sunset Blvd. and the addition of right turn lanes on Sunset Blvd. as well as the Lovers Lane Connector.

The first phase of construction work will take place on the north side of Sunset Blvd. from Starkdale Rd. to Yale Place. The work will consist of waterline upgrades and roadway widening.

Lane closures are anticipated, drivers should be alert and prepared for lane reductions and slower speeds through construction area. This phase of work is anticipated to be complete by July.

This project is funded by Federal Highway funds allocated through the Brooke-Hancock-Jefferson Metropolitan Planning Commission, 0.7% City Income Tax Revenue, and the Ohio Public Works Commission Funds. The entire project is scheduled to be complete by November.
