Liberty, engineer meet about roads

LIBERTY — Township trustees are reviewing which of the 61 miles of township roads they should have repaved this year and have received help from the Trumbull County Engineer’s Office in ranking the ones that need to be done first.

Trustee Chairwoman Jodi Stoyak said the engineer’s office compiled a comprehensive spreadsheet of all the township roads. The information included length, width and when last resurfaced for each road and then recommended whether each individual road should have chip and seal, asphalt or cold patch work done. Roads of concern include West Montrose Street and Mount Everett Road.

Trustees will review the information for further discussion at their 7 p.m. Monday meeting.
