Holland approves street projects for the summer

HOLLAND, OH (Toledo News Now) - Expect orange cones to pop up around Holland soon. The village approved a few major road projects for this summer.

The village has officially approved two projects and is hoping to add a third residential street project in an upcoming meeting. Officials hope to add Kipling Drive to the list of projects.

The portion of Hall Street outside of Springfield High School will be reconditioned. It is a $180,000 project that will begin once the students finish the school year.

Progress Street is going to be completely redone as an all concrete street, instead of the current asphalt. The village is hoping concrete will last longer on the commercial road, which is frequented by semi trucks.

The Ohio Public Works Commission and the village will split the cost of the $550,000 project evenly.

"The village has always been pretty aggressive in our street projects. We've been pretty successful in our grants, and as long we can get half of our projects paid for with grants, we've been accomplishing that," said Holland Mayor Mike Yunker.

The Progress Street project will start in July.
