ODOT breaks ground on two new building projects to improve services

Ground-breaking ceremonies were held by ODOT on Monday for two new buildings going up in the area. The new Paulding County garage and the Hicksville outpost are in the beginning of the construction phase, which will cost an estimated $10 million. The Deputy Director for ODOT District 1, Kirk Slusher, says ODOT has been working on these plans for two to three years, and credited the sale of bonds for helping raise the money needed to get the projects done. The Paulding County maintenance garage will be built on the former garage site at 833 Wayne St., Paulding. Construction will begin this month and is expected to be competed in spring 2017. Employees will work at a temporary location at 356 W. Wall St. until the new garage is constructed.
The new Hicksville outpost will serve the winter operations for both ODOT’s Defiance and Paulding County maintenance crews. It will be built next to Hicksville High School near Ohio routes 2 and 49. Construction is expected to be done in spring 2017.
