Marblehead Mayor Jackie Bird has scheduled an informational meeting at Village Hall for Marblehead residents and merchants who may want to learn more about Village plans to construct a bikeway path along two-miles of SR 163 to improve the safety of bikers and walkers. The meeting will be held on Monday, September 15, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. and is open to the public.
In 2013, Marblehead received a grant for this project from the Ohio Department of Transportation. ODOT will pay 80% of the project cost and the Village 20%. There will be no assessment or charges to the residents or businesses. Construction, under the supervision of ODOT, is scheduled to begin September 1, 2015 and completed by November 1, 2015.
