Terex Road Resurfacing Project Begins April 24
The Terex Road Resurfacing Project, from Londonairy Blvd. to Barlow Rd., is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 24, weather permitting. This project is partially funded by ODOT. Two-way traffic will be maintained and minor delays can be expected.
The section of Terex Road from Barlow Road east to Hudson Dr. will also be resurfaced this year. This other section of Terex Road is 100% funded by the City. Both sections of Terex Road are anticipated to be completed by the end of June.
2023 Concrete Program
The 2023 Concrete Program is nearly complete due to having nice weather early this season! Damaged and deteriorated sidewalks, curbs, and ADA ramps in the downtown area were repaired or replaced. A sidewalk was also added along the south side of Park Lane to connect to the existing sidewalk at SR 91.
Sidewalk and Trail Projects of Note
Several sidewalk and trail projects are on the schedule for this year. Sidewalk projects of note include:
- Middleton Road Sidewalk from Valleyview to SR 91
- SR 303 Sidewalk from N. Hayden Parkway to the east corporate line
- Stow Road Sidewalk from SR 303 to Hudson Springs Park
- Owen Brown Street Sidewalk from Morse Road, under the railroad bridge, to Lennox Road
- Valley View Road trail from SR 91 to Hunting Hollow Drive
The Veterans Trail Phase 3 project was just completed. The 8-foot wide, 1.1 mile long gravel trail begins at the end of Lynn Drive and winds through Cascade Park and along Ellsworth Meadows Golf Course all the way to Barlow Road. A new boardwalk and bridge was included in the project.
South Main Street Bridge Replacement
This project includes the replacement of the existing S. Main Street bridge that over Brandywine Creek Tributary near Yours Truly Restaurant. The project also includes the installation of a widened sidewalk along the west side of N. Main Street, under the Norfolk Southern bridge. The bridge replacement portion of the project is 100% ODOT funded and the City is participating in the costs associated with the sidewalk widening under the railroad bridge. ODOT will manage the project. The project requires the closure of SR 303 south for approximately 16 days. The schedule is still being determined, but the closure is anticipated to begin sometime after July 4. The schedule, detours, and more information will be posted when available.
