Exciting developments are underway as the City of Beavercreek continues to invest in road improvement projects in an effort to alleviate traffic congestion and improve road conditions throughout the city.
This summer, the city completed a project aimed at widening and reconstructing the section of Factory Road that stretches between the Creekside Trail and Nutter Park Drive. This improvement has successfully expanded the roadway to three lanes while also incorporating the installation of new curbs, storm sewers, and an extension of the path leading to the Creekside Trail, which previously ended at Nutter Park Drive.
The widening of Shakertown Road, between N. Fairfield Road and Carthage Drive, is currently in progress. This project includes the installation of a two-way left turn lane, curb enhancements, sidewalks, and storm sewer improvements. The project is scheduled to be completed in late autumn 2023. Once completed, residents can expect enhanced traffic flow, improved safety, and increased accessibility in this area.
A widening project along Grange Hall Road from Summerfield Drive to Kemp Road is also underway. This project will widen the road from two to three lanes to include a dedicated two-way left turn lane. It will also include curb enhancements, storm sewer improvements, and the installation of an 8-foot sidewalk on the west side and a 5-foot sidewalk on the east side of the roadway. The road is scheduled to be completed in fall 2024.
“The city’s engineering department continues to aggressively apply for federal and state grants,” said Jeff Moorman, public service director and city engineer. “A significant portion of the Shakertown Road and Grange Hall Road widening projects were funded by grants, which allows us to allocate street levy funds to additional road projects throughout the city.”
The city is also engaged in multiple ongoing and upcoming road resurfacing projects. Road crews are in the process of resurfacing N. Fairfield Road, between Lakeview Drive and Pentagon Boulevard/New Germany-Trebein Road. A completion date for this project is scheduled for fall 2023.
The city has recently awarded John R. Jurgensen Company to resurface Grange Hall Road, between Indian Ripple Road and Shakertown Road. This resurfacing initiative aims to revitalize Grange Hall Road, to create a smoother and safer driving experience. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2023.
Moreover, the city’s annual curb replacement and street resurfacing program is making strides toward improving residential streets throughout the city. This year, the city will resurface approximately 8.54 centerline miles of streets. Street resurfacing is scheduled to be completed by the end of October 2023. A list of curbs and roads included in this year’s curb replacement and street resurfacing program can be found on the city’s website at beavercreeekohio.gov/engineering.
The City of Beavercreek remains committed to enhancing the city’s roadways through these significant investments. For additional information, please contact the city’s engineering department at (937) 427-5513 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
