Ohio City's beloved West Side Market is finally revamping its restrooms, and will make a series of upgrades to have- wait for it- basic plumbing.


Crews began work Tuesday, remodeling restrooms on the south side of the building β€” a six-month, $1.5 million project intended β€œto increase the overall visitor experience at the West Side Market and maintain its status as the premiere public market in the country,” according to a city news release.

The project will include:

* Replacement of underground pipes and electrical switchgears.

* The installation of sewage ejection pumps and major grease trap interceptors.

* Re-roofing.

* Upgrades to lighting and electrical upgrades.

* Masonry repairs and door replacements.

Praise the lord!
