County Highway Department Plans Summer Paving Projects

The Oswego County Highway Department plans to re-pave nearly 22 miles of county roads this summer. There are 26 projects scheduled, mostly in the eastern and central areas of the county because of the Route 104 bridge closure in Oswego.

Due to increased prices of fuel and asphalt, the department has cut back its original 2008 schedule and postponed some projects. County Highway Superintendent Kurt Ospelt said the list of paving projects may be adjusted as the season progresses.

The following projects are scheduled:

  • Hastings: County Route 45 between U.S. Route 11 and French Street

The highway department has scheduled three bridge projects:
