Road Construction Update – Spring 2017
Update (6/7/2017): Construction crews will start the final layer of asphalt to complete this road rehabilitation project on Thursday, June 8. The areas affected have all been posted as “no parking” for Thursday and Friday. Please make sure to remove vehicles from the street or they will be towed at the owner’s expense.
Due to continued resident complaints about excessive speed on “long” Ardmore (between Hammel & Fairoaks), we will be installing two “speed humps” as a part of this project to curtail motorist speeding. This is a test project for the Village as we will monitor their effectiveness and evaluate their use. A decision will be made from this test regarding installing them on other streets throughout the Village as we complete other rehabilitation projects.
Update (5/15/2017): Construction crews will begin the first coat of asphalt on Ardmore, Fairoaks and St. Albans east of Fairoaks beginning Tuesday, May 16, 2017. Construction areas will be clearly posted as “no parking” throughout the project as necessary. Residents will need to be sure vehicles are removed from the streets in these areas by the posted time, usually 7 am, each day construction is taking place. Vehicles not removed that are in the way of construction crews will be towed at the owner’s expense.
Update (4/1/2017): Construction crews have resumed work on curb repair and replacement along the entire length of Ardmore and Fairoaks and on St. Albans east of Fairoaks. Residents will receive periodic notice from the contractor, Prus Construction, regarding parking changes and road closures to through traffic. An additional project repairing a storm drain problem on Ardmore, between Losantiville and Fairoaks, will also be conducted during this project.
Update (12/20/2016): Due to impending winter weather, the completion of this project has now been rescheduled for the Spring after the weather breaks.
Update (12/5/2016): Construction crews started curb repair and replacement today.
Update (11/23/2016): The Village was advised by Paul Long, Vice President of Prus Construction that their crew assigned to start work in Golf Manor will be delayed by one week due to additional work they are completing on a project in Newport. They will be starting here in the Village on Monday, December 5.
Update (11/11/2016): Mayor Ron Hirth, Village Engineer Tim King, Village Budget Manager Jamie Smith, and Paul Long, Vice President of Prus Construction held a pre-construction meeting on November 10, 2016 to sign contracts to begin the road work and lock in our pricing. Curb repair will start the week of November 28 with road resurfacing commencing in the Spring.
It’s time to finally breathe a sigh of relief as construction crews pack up their equipment now that the water main project coordinated by the Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW) is finally wrapping up on Ardmore and Fair Oaks. We’re informed by Tim King, Village engineer that Leslie Moening from GCWW states, “All the water main and service branches have been installed on Ardmore and Fair Oaks.” So very good news there.
Now you’re wondering what about the street restoration? We’re early enough into the Fall season that our contractor will start the curb rehabilitation within the next couple of weeks, but late enough that the actual asphalt resurfacing will be completed first thing next Spring when the weather breaks. So look for Ardmore, Fair Oaks and St. Albans east of Fair Oaks to get new asphalt in Spring 2017. At least the delay allows for the new road surface to escape the wear and tear of salt application during snowy and icy weather for this coming Winter. Our contractor has agreed to lock in the great price for next year that was offered during the open bid period.
We appreciate the patience of our residents on Ardmore and Fair Oaks. This has been an extended project that the Village was totally dependent on scheduling by our water service provider GCWW. We understand the frustration that goes along with major residential street projects when they occur and apologize for any delays or inconvenience residents may have experienced during the project. The light is finally at the end here to which we can all look forward to get to the completion of this improvement to the Village infrastructure.
Thanks for your patience and we will do our best to keep you updated on progress as things move along.
