A delay in road repairs taking place from the junction of State Route 149 and State Route 22 and along State Route 149 throughout the Village of Granville heading to Vermont has caused many headaches for those driving through the village.

Fear not, because Mayor Paul Labas said the paving will resume on Monday, May 3, weather permitting.

“They had an issue with a paver, I do know that,” Labas said via phone call on Friday, April 30. “The paver wasn’t laying down the pavement right.”

The yellow bricks laid down in 1921 on West Main Street being revealed in 2021.

The process of stripping and grinding the prior blacktop has revealed yellow-bricks on Quaker Street and Main Street stemming back to when they were placed in 1914, a sight many have observed and acknowledged in passing.

Labas, who has been in communication with town supervisor Matt Hicks and state highway department officials regarding the progress of the repaving process, said the three parties expect the paving job to be completed by May 14, weather permitting.

“The paving is supposed to be done in less than two weeks,” Labas said.

The completion of this project will be immediately followed by the reconstruction of the Church Street bridge in the first week of June, as the two projects are trying not to overlap one another.
