This is a widening, repair, and resurfacing project. A new surface course, thermoplastic pavement markings, raised pavement markers, and storm sewer will be installed the length of the work limits. The existing pavement is past its useful life and the additional capacity is required due to traffic generated by the new school development. The proposed pavement replacement and shoulder additions will be a safety improvement. The improved road will include curb and a center dual-left turn lane between Holden Boulevard and Busway Drive, shoulder widening north of Busway, and grade changes to improve the at-grade railroad crossing.
The limits for this project includes North Gilmore from Holden Boulevard to Symmes Road. Some outside funding will be provided by the Fairfield City Schools, and $750,000 additional funding was awarded from The Ohio Public Works Commission.
Southbound traffic will be detoured for the duration of construction. The road will be closed at the railroad crossing while work is performed adjacent to the CSX railroad.
