MANSFIELD, Ohio – Mansfield’s last brick road within city limits -- Columbia Ave. -- took steps to being a memory as the bricks were removed Monday morning. Kokosing Construction was contracted by the city to undertake the project, which includes taking up the bricks and replacing them with asphalt. The entire project costs $80,000. It will be funded through the city’s Street Resurfacing Income Tax, also known as the Pothole Haters Tax. The road was built in 1921, Theaker said, and consists of approximately 90,000 bricks. The city hopes to save 70,000 bricks for future use. (Video by Jarred Bates, staff reporter) The salvaged bricks will be stored at the City Service Complex, 480 Park Ave. West.
