Portland Way North Project Begins This Month

A section of Portland Way North will undergo construction this summer. Beginning Monday, June 19, project contractor Underground Utilities will mobilize to the site.


The project will begin immediately north of the Heise Park Lane intersection and continue north 900 feet, immediately before the Carter Drive intersection. A sewer line will be replaced and the roadway will be reconstructed. Project cost is $442,480.95.


The west lane of Portland Way North will close on the week of June 26.


The road will be open to NORTHBOUND traffic only during the project. Local traffic going southbound will need to use the state-approved local detour route: Turn right onto Brandt Road, turn left onto Biddle Road, turn left onto Bucyrus Road (State Route 19). Commercial trucks will use a state detour route.


Other considerations:

  • The Timberlane subdivision will remain accessible via Portland Way North. This will be the only access point for residents.
  • Cedargate Apartments will be accessible via the north drive only.
  • The main drive to the Galion City Schools campus will be shut down during the project. Drivers will need to use the Hesby Drive entrance.
  • Ralphie’s and Alger Arms Apartments will be accessible from Heise Park Lane.
