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.

S Court St, W 6th St and W 8th St, Waterline Improvements

This waterline replacement project involves installing approximately 5,800 feet of new waterline along South Court Street, West 6th Street, and West 8th Street. The project is necessary in order to upgrade the City’s aging cast iron waterlines. Construction is projected to start in May and should be completed by November 1, 2017.
