2018 Street Resurfacing Projects

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

The following streets are scheduled to be resurfaced by the end of the year through a competitive bidding process awarded to Northern Kentucky-based Eaton Asphalt. Every effort is being made to complete this work this year. However, it is possible given the uncertainty of the weather that a couple of these streets may not be completed by year’s end and before the asphalt plants close for the season. While we hope this is not the case, any street that is not able to be completed this year will be completed in the spring when the asphalt plants reopen. The anticipated order in which these streets will be paved is as follows:

In addition to these streets, Lexington Avenue is scheduled to be totally reconstructed by TMS Construction in the spring/summer of 2019. Unfortunately, the complexity of the project, contractor commitments, and weather prohibits the reconstruction of Lexington Avenue this year. 

In addition to the resurfacing that is scheduled to occur this fiscal year, Eaton Asphalt will be constructing a redesigned roadway at the intersection of East 9th Streets and Wildcat Drive where the old City Garage once was. This redesigned roadway will provide better traffic flow, safer pedestrian travel and greatly improve the overall aesthetics of the area. 

Additional information about all these projects will be made available as soon as we have firm dates from the contractors when each project will begin. Please watch for signs that will be posted restricting parking to facilitate the completion of the work.

The City is very excited about these projects and our commitment to continually improve our roads for our residents and visitors.
