Multiple improvements are being made to Harrison Avenue near Nisbet Park in Historic Downtown Loveland.
Harrison is being widened from 16-20 feet to 22 feet between North Karl Brown Way and Railroad Avenue. Additionally, Harrison will be realigned to the north by approximately 70 feet to improve road and parking lot access. The wider road will improve the turning radius from North Karl Brown Way, as well as safety along the Little Miami Scenic Trail.
The project includes installation of sidewalks, curbs, catch basins, road signs and pavement, as well as storm sewer and drainage improvements. Storm sewers will be repaired along Harrison, North Karl Brown, and First Street. Much of the storm sewer work requires a portion of Nisbet Park to be excavated.
Construction costs are estimated at $462,600. To offset the cost, city staff obtained $370,000 in grant funding from the Ohio Public Works Commission.
This project began in September 2023 and is estimated to be complete in Spring 2024. Once complete, the city can move forward with implementing the Nisbet Park Master Plan.
September 29, 2023 The project started this week with storm water upgrades.
October 6, 2023 Storm water connection work continued this week.
October 20, 2023 The project continues at a steady pace. A significant portion of the new storm water system has been installed.
October 27, 2023 Crews laid the base for the expanded portion of Harrison Avenue (east of Railroad Avenue) that will provide direct access to the new parking lot. This portion of the project includes a driveway apron to the existing City Hall parking area, which will be reconfigured to add additional spaces and improve access.
November 17, 2023 The road widening project is in its final stages. The sidewalks are nearing completion, which will then be followed by paving.
