CINCINNATI – Crews doing $9.9 million in rehabilitation work to city streets have finished three of the eight target neighborhoods and are nearing completion on another three.
The final course of asphalt was applied this week and last to streets in Kennedy Heights, Madisonville and Pleasant Ridge. Crews will do finish work, such as line striping, next week.
Meanwhile, crews will begin paving streets in North Avondale, parts of Avondale and Evanston next week. Paving is on schedule to be complete in November. Paving will commence in Corryville and the rest of Avondale by mid-October. Crews are currently doing curb repairs and casting adjustments in those two neighborhoods.
In Northside, crews finished grinding and leveling this week and will begin curb and driveway repairs, and casting adjustments next week. Road surfaces are ground down and left intentionally rough to allow crews to prep the surface so the new pavement adheres. Curb repairs and casting adjustments are the last major steps before the final course of asphalt is applied.
Paving may begin in mid to late October in Northside, depending on the weather. It originally was scheduled for late November.
This rehab project is funded as part of the city’s Capital Acceleration Plan. It covers approximately 37 lane miles in eight neighborhoods in 2016. Combined with the annual street improvement program, outside grants and CAP, the city is investing approximately $172 million to rehabilitate or resurface more than half its 2,936 total lane miles in all 52 neighborhoods by June 30, 2021.
Please see below for a complete list of streets undergoing rehabilitation in 2016.
The type of work varies based on the condition of each street but generally includes:
- Grinding and paving
- Replacing curbs and curb ramps
- Repairing driveway aprons and sidewalks, as required
- Adjusting utility castings to grade
- Final surface coat of new pavement
- Line striping
Typical work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Crews may work later into the evening and on Saturdays, if needed.
Rehab work takes about two months to complete per street. On most streets, at least two lanes will remain open to through traffic during repairs. Local access to residences and businesses will be available at all times.
All roads will be reopened to through traffic during non-work hours.
On-street parking may be prohibited, as needed, to accommodate crews. Signs will be posted in advance to allow motorists time to find alternate parking options. In most cases, these temporary restrictions will be in place for less than 24 hours and a street will be reopened by 6:00 p.m. Violators will be towed per city ordinance.
Look for updates early next month and later this fall.
