41 streets being paved in South Point

SOUTH POINT–– The village of South Point is currently in the process of paving 41 streets adding up to 5.66 miles being paved with 3,023 cubic yards of asphalt.

“We looked over the whole village and picked out the worst streets,” Scott Thomas, village fiscal officer, said.

Thomas said that the village tries to pave every 10 years to keep the streets up, but the last time paving took place on side streets was in 2000.

Main roads in South Point have since been paved with money from the Ohio Public Works Commission, but the village is responsible for paving its side streets.

Thomas said all of the paving is expected to be complete in a few weeks.
