Deteriorating high-traffic roads focus of state funds for Miamisburg

Linden Avenue and Heincke Road are again being targeted as Miamisburg seeks more state aid on road projects in high-traffic areas.

The Linden work includes two phases totaling about $3.4 million, while the Heincke work tops $1.1 million, city records show. Miamisburg is seeking about $1.27 million for each Linden phase and about $834,000 for Heincke.

“The project applications for bridge and roadway improvements submitted by the city are competitive,” according to Miamisburg City Engineer Bob Stanley. “It is not uncommon for projects to be submitted several times for consideration.”

One project - for the $1.9 million reconstruction of part of South Gebhart Church Road – had been submitted for years before being awarded Issue 2 funds in 2018, Stanley said.

Two sections of Linden Avenue and one part of Heincke have been nominated since 2012 and their conditions continue to worsen, according to Stanley.

Those “roadway improvement projects involve much more than asphalt resurfacing. The projects include roadway reconstruction including utility replacements, curb, gutter and sidewalk improvements along with total asphalt resurfacing,” he said.

The Heincke work would include the Rosina Drive intersection. The two projects on Linden would include Maue Road to Oak Knoll Circle and Oak Knoll to Leis Road, records show.

In 2013, work was completed on East Linden from Maue Road to Seventh Street as a $1.1 million Issue 2 grant funded all but $200,000 of the work.

The project was called a “major reconstruction” that section of Linden and repaving the asphalt, landscaping the corridor between curb and sidewalk and finishing a retaining wall, as well as renovating the street signs, markings and stop lights, officials said.

Meanwhile, engineering design for the South Gebhart Church work is being done now and the construction is set for next year, according to Stanley.

The project that run from Belvo Road and Jessi Lane includes roadway reconstruction, widening, installation of sidewalk, curb and gutter, and storm drainage upgrades.

That section of road is about a half mile. There will also be replacement of nearly 1,800 feet of eight-inch water main and associated services along this section, according to the city.
