Defiance's East Second Street, from Prospect Street to Grover Avenue, is officially open. The stretch of roadway had been closed since June 9 for replacement of the Preston Run culvert. Sand Ridge Excavating, Cloverdale, was employed by the Ohio Department of Transportation for the job.
The new culvert is 18 by 10 feet and measures approximately 126 feet long. The previous culvert was built in 1937.
The project will be completed with new sidewalks in the near future.
