Tiffin, Ohio — Due to unforeseen issues, workers for AT&T are to continue work on Wednesday, Feb. 16, on a portion of Ella Street, in front of the AquaOhio Waterworks Facility, 170 Ella St.

The road is to be fully closed between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., but is not to interfere with drop off and pick-up at Tiffin Middle School.

AT&T initially planned to do this work on Feb. 7, and had rescheduled the work for Feb. 15.

The closure is related to the upcoming Ella Street River Bridge Project. The City of Tiffin will be finalizing the design of the project this Spring and intends to begin soliciting bids for the construction contract in Summer 2022.

Plans and contract for this project are being developed so that Ella Street will not be fully closed to traffic before Memorial Day 2023 to minimize impact to residents and Tiffin City Schools. The bridge is to be complete and open to traffic by December 2023.
