Village paving Jefferson Street

Traveling Jefferson Street in the village of Blissfield for the next week may be a little rough as crews begin to prepare the street for paving next week. The village contracted with the Lenawee County Road Commission for work that began Tuesday morning.

Village Department of Public Works Superintendent Mark Strahan said traffic will be able to get down the road this week as road crews are working to clean out the street after the surface was removed Tuesday. Strahan said he expects paving to begin and end the week of Aug. 19, weather permitting. The street will remain open but drivers may experience street closures or lane closures while the street is being paved.
