NEW DETAILS: Road work starting soon to handle new recreation complex traffic

A $1.28 million bid has been awarded to restructure a strip of a West Carrollton corridor in preparation of the opening of a recreation complex.

L.J. DeWeese Co. LLC of Tipp City submitted to the lowest of two bids for work on West Central Avenue that is planned for a $4.3 million volleyball complex with a restaurant and bar expected to open later this year, city records show.

The Miami County company was selected over Barrett Paving Materials Inc., which submitted a bid of nearly $1.32 million, according to the city.

The city plans to slightly widen West Central from Elm Street to Miami Avenue, and transform it from four lanes to three while adding on-street parking.

Work is scheduled to begin soon, West Carrollton officials said.

The project is designed so that section of West Central can accommodate traffic expected to be generated from the volleyball complex.

Developers of Miami Valley Sand – the 6.6-acre complex – say they expect it to attract at least 300 people a night after opening later this year.

The road construction also aims to blend with future streetscape changes and handle traffic growth through 2039, city officials said.
