Tiffin, Ohio — Jefferson Street has been reopened following completion of the major construction portion of the City of Tiffin’s streetscape project.
The streetscaping project includes new curb and sidewalks, decorative stamped concrete between the sidewalk and curb, stamped concrete crosswalks.
In the coming weeks, more items will be added including decorative light poles, signage, trees, and streetscaping furniture including but not limited to trash cans, bike racks, planters, hanging baskets.
“What a difference the beautification project has made on the neighborhood!” the City of Tiffin wrote on its official Facebook page.
The project also includes the resurfacing and striping of Jefferson Street and the resurfacing of the alley to the north of National Corner and the Frost-Kalnow Amphitheater on the East Green and to the east of the Tiffin-Seneca Public Library.
The project was awarded to Norwalk-based Smith Paving & Excavating.
The projected is funded through a $300,000 grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, which provided some administrative services. The City Engineer’s office designed and is managing the construction administration and inspection for this project. By doing so and not using consultants, the City of Tiffin was able to maximize the grant dollars for this project.
