LOGAN —Logan Mayor Serafino Nolletti has a list of projects underway for the city.
The City of Logan and Department of Highways are set to get Main and Stratton Streets paved. Work is scheduled to begin in about two weeks and expected to take about two weeks to complete. The streets are to be milled, which means the top layer of asphalt will be taken off before repaving. The work is scheduled to be done in the evening to limit the inconvenience and disruption to the businesses. “It has been 12-13 years since the streets have been paved,” said Mayor Nolletti, “We are happy to finally get this done. New asphalt will make the town look cleaner and brighter.”
Mayor Nolletti wants to pave more of the downtown streets and efforts are being made to finding funding sources for additional paving.
Work on the Route 10 bridge to connect Logan to Man will begin soon. It is a $25 million project that will take two years to complete.
Surveys are being done in preparation to replace the bridge near the hospital in 2014.
A project to provide sanitary sewer service to 25 homes and businesses in Stollings is slated to be out to bid in two weeks
Visitors riding the Hatfield McCoy trails will soon have an easier and less confusing time getting in and out of Logan. A new trail connector will be completed within the next year.
Mayor Nolletti says there is more interest in downtown Logan than there has been in years. Even though the new state office building is running behind schedule, it is very near completion. This building and the area around it will be a beautiful, new landmark for the city and provide state of the art office space for its tenants.
A few new businesses have opened or will open soon: Sumthin’ Country, Necessary Things and the Consignment Boutique.
The city will benefit greatly once 50 abandoned or blighted properties have been repaired or torn down. Letters are being sent to the last known address for the property owners who will be given 30 days to address the problems with their property before additional steps are taken.
