The Department of Public Works is currently performing the following work throughout the city:

  • Starting Friday, March 5, 2019, the contractor working on the Sloane Street Manhole & Slip Lining Project will be working within the intersection of W Monroe and Sloane Streets, closing the intersection to all vehicular traffic.

  • In order to perform work, the Division of Forestry will close Shelby Street between Ransom Road and North Depot Street on Monday, March 18th from 7:00 am until 3:00 pm. Road closure signs will be set-up directing traffic to take an alternate route. Please use extreme caution when traveling this area.

  • In order to perform work, the Division of Forestry will close E. Madison Street between Warren Street and Perry Street on Friday, March 15th from 7:00 am until 3:00 pm. Road closure signs will be set-up directing traffic to take an alternate route. Please use extreme caution when traveling this area.

  • Starting Monday, January 14, 2019, until further notice, the Jackson Street Pier will be closed to all pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Access will be maintained to all passengers loading and unloading from the Goodtime and/or the Pelee Islander vessels. As the operational season draws near, signage will be posted directing traffic to alternate downtown parking areas.

  • Starting Monday, January 14, 2019, the contractor working on the Cedar Point waterline project will be shifting traffic at the high bridge on Cedar Point Drive. The contractor will be working in the two northbound lanes for the next several weeks. The southbound lanes will be split in to one northbound lane and one southbound lane, keeping access to vehicular traffic at all times.

  • Winter has finally arrived in Sandusky so we would like to remind residents and business owners to pay attention to Snow Emergency Routes throughout the city. In the event of heavy snowfall, a parking ban may be enforced on Snow Emergency Routes by the Department of Public Works. Any vehicle parked on these streets during that time may be ticketed or towed. During snow storms, city Public Works crews focus on keeping the snow routes and major streets open through the duration of the storm. This allows essential and emergency travel around town even in the worst of conditions. Once the snow stops, the focus shifts to clearing the side streets and residential areas. During winter storms, city, county and state employees work hard to make roads passable. All motorists should be mindful that plow drivers cannot see directly behind their trucks and often stop or back up. Keeping a safe distance behind these vehicles will protect you from possible injury and protect your car from materials they spread on slick roadways.
