The additional lane will be a center two-way left turn lane.

West 5th Street Waterline Replacement
The West 5th Street Waterline Replacement project will replace the waterline along West 5th Street between Maple Street and Court Street. Properties along this section of West 5th Street will experience a short interruption in water service during the service transfer to the new waterline. Access to all properties will be maintained throughout construction on this project. Temporary interruptions in traffic may be necessary for construction.
Uptown Alley Improvements
The Uptown Alley Improvements project will improve the aesthetics and significantly enhance the experience for pedestrians and visitors of the Uptown. These improvements were suggested as part of the 2016 Uptown Revitalization Plan. Improvements will be made to the north / south alley between South Main Street and South Plum Street and the east / west alley between East 5th Street and East 6th Street. The north / south alley improvements include replacing the existing asphalt alley with brick pavers and overhead lighting to create a more accommodating path between East 5th Street and Partners Park. The east / west alley improvements include replacing the existing asphalt alley with brick pavers, outdoor seating and furnishings, and overhead string lights. This will create a unique outdoor experience for visitors of the Uptown.
Water Treatment Plant Offsite Utilities
The Water Treatment Plant Off-Site Utilities project will install the necessary waterline extensions along Raymond Road, from West 5th Street to the Water Treatment Plant site. Additional work with this project involves the installation of a sanitary sewer service from the Water Treatment Plant to the public sanitary system at the intersection of Millwood Boulevard and Creekview Drive.
Hickory Run Storm Sewer Improvements
The Hickory Gate Drive Stormwater Improvements project will make improvements to the existing stormwater system along Hickory Gate Drive and Pepperbush Court. Improvements include replacing an existing culvert along Pepperbush Court and installing a new storm line along Hickory Gate Drive that will outlet across Southard Road, downstream of the Hickory Run subdivision.
Jerome Township Water Tower
The Jerome Township Water Tower project will install a new 1.5 MGD water tower in Jerome Township to meet the ever-increasing water demands of the region. The water tower will also provide improved pressure and additional storage for the City’s water users in southeast Union County (Jerome Township).
Pump Station # 2
The Pump Station #2 Improvements project will replace the City’s current Pump Station #2 with a pump station that will meet the ever-increasing sewer capacity demands within the southeastern portion of Union County. The existing Pump Station #2 is a 0.5 MGD pump station and is nearing its maximum capacity. The new pump station has a 1.5 MGD pumping capacity and is designed to expand (if needed) in the future to pump up to 2.5 MGD.
State Route 4 & Scott Farms Blvd Traffic Signal
The State Route 4 and Scott Farms Boulevard Traffic Signal project will install a new traffic signal at the SR 4 and Scott Farms Blvd intersection. The signal will be equipped with the same smart technology that is already installed at the other 29 traffic signals within Marysville.
Joint Recreation Improvements
In effort to improve the Union County Joint Recreational District the City of Marysville will be converting two of the existing baseball fields into synthetic turf fields. Improvements also include a new concessions stand and public restrooms for the four Northern baseball fields. These fields were recently installed to provide additional space as noted in the Parks & Recreation Master plan.
2021 Pavement Maintenance Program
The 2021 Pavement Maintenance project includes asphalt resurfacing for City maintained streets. This project continues the City’s annual commitment to improving our road network. Every street in Marysville is evaluated annually and rated based on their conditions. Streets are then prioritized with the lowest rated streets receiving pavement maintenance.
