Proposed County Line Road improvements in Kettering

The City of Kettering is planning to spend more than $4 million to upgrade County Line Road from the intersection of Dorothy Lane to the intersection of Vale Drive.

There has been a demand for additional lanes to help accommodate traffic--and as part of the project--they will widen the road to five lanes, replace sidewalks, and re-adjust street lights.

Kettering also plans to extend the road to make room for business growth. “This project is important for the City of Kettering and the City of Beavercreek, as we see continued growth in the Miami Valley Research Park,” said Assistant City Manager Steve Bergstresser. “If you take all the employees collectively in the park, it’s probably our largest employment center,” he said.

The city recently purchased 300 undeveloped acres within the Miami Valley Research Park for new jobs and new developments.

Federal and state funds will cover approximately 60% of the project, and the remaining cost will be split between the City of Kettering and the City of Beavercreek.

This project is expected to begin in Spring 2021 and last about 18 months, with completion by Fall 2022.

Anyone seeking more information about the proposed project can attend the public meeting on July 18 from 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the Charles I. Lathrem Senior Center.
