After re-driving a short stretch of Business Loop Highway 20 in Toledo, it appears to this writer that the road settling/slumping has perceptively worsened over the past couple of weeks. Toledo Public Works Director Adam Denlinger told his city council Wednesday evening that they’ve been told the road may have be re-built, beyond just a simple re-pave job. If that proves true, the cost could range between $300,000 and $500,000. At that cost both ODOT and the Federal Highway Administration would be chipping in 90% of that cost, leaving the city to cough up between $30,000 and $50,000.
Denlinger said he expects to hear very shortly what scale of work will be required. He said ODOT wants the road repaired before the winter rains begin.
