Project Scope: The total cost of the project is $1,168,000, and the city has entered into a contract with Ford Development Corporation. The scope of work includes replacing the 4" cast iron water main, storm sewer improvements, and repaving on Main St., Chestnut St., S. Wall St., and Hill St. The project also includes a complete replacement of the traffic signal at Wall St. and W. Loveland Ave., and upgrades to radar vehicular detection and GPS pre-emption there and at the traffic signal at Main St. and Loveland-Madeira Rd. Duke Energy will have some utility pole replacements on the north side of W. Loveland Ave. at Wall St. to raise overhead lines in May-June, prior to the City's project start date. 

The project began Oct. 4, and crews began work by tapping into the water main located beneath Riverside Drive. In November, water service transfer and water meter replacement work will occur. Storm sewer and concrete repairs will happen next, followed by paving and traffic signal replacement in spring 2022.
