Mayhem on main street
Written by David Schaef

It started off as a rather simple appearing project - repave the stretch of highway on Route 6 just east of Linesville borough where Rt. 6 y’s off to Conneaut Lake with the intersection of the Harmonsburg Road and pave through Linesville west to the edge of the borough line at Airport Road.

Plans called for redoing and replacing various storm sewer lines plus putting in handicapped parking spots and handicapped friendly curb cuts at various intersections.

The PennDOT plan was to start late July/early August and be done by mid October.

Linesville Borough, ahead of these plans, spent the spring/summer redoing various water lines so streets would not have to be torn up somewhat later if there was a repair need with that work also extending into borough side streets and other areas. Thousands of dollars were spent reportedly from the fund that water users pay into at $5.00 a month.
