Is wider street better? ODOT permits 37-foot width, Wapak City Council to make final decision
With Wapakoneta city administrators officially receiving word Thursday from Ohio Department of Transportation officials, Wapakoneta City Council now has the power to decide if a section of West Auglaize Street to be reconstructed in 2014 will be 37 feet or 39 feet wide.
During his report to councilors, Mayor Rodney Metz announced he received a letter Thursday permitting the shorter width. City officials designed the street to be 39 feet wide, meeting requirements councilors cited as being imposed by ODOT engineers.
