Sidewalk closed downtown


SIDNEY — Sidney city officials have closed the sidewalk along Ohio Avenue in front of the Ohio Building due to safety concerns.

During an inspection of the Ohio Building, it was discovered that the part of the basement that is located underneath the sidewalk may not be providing adequate support for the sidewalk area, city officials said. The sidewalk will remain closed until the city can have a structural engineer come to inspect this area of the basement and determine if it is structurally sound.

People with questions or concerns should contact the Engineering/Public Works Department at 937-498-8142 or by email to lwerling@sidneyoh.com.
