Stover Ave. Road Project is Moving Forward
UPDATE: (6/29/2020) – We are heading into the final phase of the Stover Ave. road project with final construction starting on Monday, July, 6, 2020. Grinding of the blacktop surface between Losantiville and Bremont will begin along with removing the road substrate between Bremonet and Rosedale. It will all be finished with a new blacktop road surface and completion of some details along the curb. The project is expected to be complete by the end of July.
UPDATE: (3/18/2020) – Installation of a new water main and related work on Stover is now at a critical point where the new water main needs to be activated.
The Greater Cincinnati Water Works has scheduled activation of the new water main on Stover from Bremont to Rosedale overnight this weekend on Sunday, March 22 from 10 PM to 6 AM as well as on Monday, March 23 from 10 PM to 6 AM.
The reason for overnight hours is directly due to the COVID -19 event. GCWW has directed that water will not be shut off during the day due to more people being at home, particularly school children, impairing the ability to wash hands and perform other sanitary needs.
The contractor has advised that any major digging has been performed ahead of time and noise will be kept to a minimum, however there may be trucks beeping and ground plates being moved.
Today, Friday 3/20, the contractor will be posting notices at each house as well as GCWW alerting residents to a pending water outage by door hanger, also today.
GOLF MANOR (11/4/2019) – The engineering is complete, bids have been accepted, a contractor has been selected, legislation has been passed, and contracts have been signed. The Village of Golf Manor will be performing a major road project starting in late Winter/early Spring 2020 with improvements being made on Stover Avenue. The specific start date will depend on the weather.
This road project represents over one million dollars in investment on the Stover infrastructure including replacement of the water main, to be performed by the Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW), replacement of fire hydrants, total curb replacement from Losantiville to just past Rosedale, and a total removal and replacement of the substrate of the street from Bremont to Rosedale. This project will also include the installation of three speed humps that will be strategically placed, at the direction of the Police Chief, along the street to curtail speeding.
The first phase of this project will be the work GCWW will complete to replace the water main. Following that will be work on the curbs.
“We are excited to get this project moving and are very pleased with keeping the cost low and using tax dollars as efficiently as we can,” stated Ron Hirth, Village Administrator. Hirth continued, “Originally this project was scheduled to begin in 2019, however material and labor costs were excessively high and it made sense to wait to bid the project in the Fall so we could get the best rates and do more construction at a lesser cost.”
Note that the portion of road located past the Rosedale properties (sometimes referred to as the Stover cul-de-sac adjoining Farmdale) is not owned by the Village and is not a dedicated public street. This area is not a part of this project.
