Reconstruction Project In Hilltop Road Begins

Hilltop Road in St. Joseph will be under construction for the next several months. St. Joseph City Engineer Tim Zebell tells WSJM News they’re reconstructing the road in two phases, north of Cleveland and then south of Cleveland. He notes the effort is a joint project of the city, the road commission, the township, and the sanitary sewer authority.

“It’s a really good project for the area because we’re coordinating,” Zebell said. “There’s multiple entities involved, and everybody’s coordinating very nicely.”

Zebell says they’ll be replacing sections of the water mains under the road, helping to ensure fewer breaks in the future. Traffic will be shifted around the areas of the project in different ways as it progresses. Everything should be finished in July.
