Tiffin, Ohio — Due to inclement weather, workers for AT&T will now be closing a portion of Ella Street on Feb. 15, 2022, in front of the AquaOhio Waterworks Facility, 170 Ella St.

Due to the proximity of Tiffin Middle School, the utility company has been informed that the street cannot be fully closed between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

AT&T initially planned to do this work on Feb. 7, but the snow event last week caused them to find a new date.

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.
