The ODOT project expected to cost about $1.39 million will have at least one lane of traffic open in both directions for the nearly 1.5-mile project, tentatively scheduled from August to mid-October, according to the city.
Centerville is expected to pay for 20% of the work’s cost, about $278,600, records show.
Three other projects near that area of Ohio 48, or Main Street in Centerville, that are currently in the works or planned are not expected to coincide with the resurfacing, Swanson said.
Franklin Street will be paved in the first half of June. A CenterPoint Energy gas line project on Ohio 48 from Franklin to Peach Grove Avenue is also set to be completed before the repaving, as is traffic signal redesign work at Ohio 48 and Spring Valley Road, he added.
Swanson said driveway access on Ohio 48 in the construction zone will be maintained.
“The road is showing typical signs of wear and tear,” Swanson said.
Ohio 48 from Edenhurst Drive to Franklin was last resurfaced in 2012 and Edenhurst to Sheehan Road was done in 2005, he said.
The city’s goal is to repave thoroughfares on a 15-year cycle, Swanson said.
ODOT plans to bid the project in June, according to Centerville Public Works Director Pat Turnbull.
