CANTON – Overnight paving will begin soon along Main Street in Canton.

Workers Thursday night set up and tested the lights they will be using for the job.

The paving was due to begin last Monday, but might not start until early next week, according to village superintendent Brien Hallahan.

Intended to get some potentially disruptive work done during the nighttime lull in traffic, the work was put off while preparation was completed.

The work is part of the $10 million project rebuilding about a mile of Main Street downtown.

The state Department of Transportation says this phase of the paving should be done by Oct. 19.

The entire project, which includes new drainage, curb and sidewalk work in addition to rebuilding the road, is due to be finished about a year from now.
