2018 Capital Improvements Overview
The 2018 construction season will be a busy one for the City. In total, there are thirteen (13) major capital projects that will be administered.
2018 Pavement Maintenance Program
This annual project includes asphalt resurfacing for City-maintained streets. All streets are evaluated annually and assigned a rating based on condition. Streets are then prioritized and included in the program as funding allows. See below for the 2017 Pavement Condition Ratings for City Maintained streets. The details for this year's pavement maintenance program will be posted once bids are received.
Main Street Bridge Improvement
The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has identified the need to replace the bridge on Main St. (SR-31) over Mill Creek. Construction efforts to replace the bridge have begun and are funded and managed by ODOT district 6. The construction of the bridge will require Main St. to be closed for 120 days. The roadway is currently scheduled to be closed on February 19th and will reopen on June 19th, 2018.
SR 31 Widening Phase 1 (Mill Wood Blvd to Mill Rd)
State Route 31 will be widened to allow for two lanes in each direction form south of Mill Rd to just north of Mill Wood Blvd. This will help alleviate traffic congestion in the morning and evening commutes by providing two lanes of traffic though the signals at Mill Wood Blvd and Mill Rd. It will also provide more storage for cars to queue and prevent vehicles from blacking up through signalized intersections.
Cook's Pointe Blvd
This project includes the construction of a road that will connect SR 31 and SR 4 between the intersections of County Home Rd/SR 4 and Mill Wood Blvd/SR31. The roadway will be five lanes wide and include street lighting, street trees, a shared use path and sidewalk. This project, in conjunction with the SR 31 Widening Phase 1 project will help alleviate traffic congestion in the area by providing motorists an alternate route to access US 33.
