Larchview Drive/Plainfield Road Improvements Project:
The Sycamore Township Board of Trustees is requesting statements of qualifications for engineering services for the Larchview Drive and Plainfield Road Improvements Project.
Kugler Mill Road Project:
The Township, in conjunction with the Hamilton County Engineer’s Office, has been working for over three years on engineering and design of the improvements to Kugler Mill Road from Blue Ash Road to Montgomery Road. These improvements will consist of the reconstruction of the roadway, construction of curb, storm sewers, storm water detention, sidewalks on the north side, the addition of a turn lane on Kugler Mill at Montgomery Road and utility updates. The acquisition of easements for the project will commence this winter, followed by utility relocations in 2020 and the construction of the improvements to commence in late 2020 and/or early 2021.
This project is funded by a 50% state grant with Hamilton County paying for the other 50% of the road rehabilitation and the Township paying for the other 50% of the sidewalk portion of the project.
The Kugler Mill Road Improvements Project is now out to bid with a bid opening scheduled for Friday, October 23, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.
Sycamore Road Project:
Construction on Sycamore Road continues and is starting to take shape. The roundabout has been completed and the phase from Plainfield Road to Blue Ash Road is now finished. The next phase moves east across Blue Ash Road to install new storm sewers, curb and gutter and new pavement on the section of Sycamore Road between Blue Ash Road and Kenwood Roads. The final construction phase will be paving of the final surface course of pavement throughout the project limits.
Though this is a large project, it is not a heavy burden to Sycamore Township tax payers. It is being paid for by a combination of grants and local funds. There is a federal grant paying for 78% of the project and a state grant paying for another 11%. This leaves only 11% of the project cost to be paid for by local funds.
The reconstruction of the road, installation of improved storm sewers and the addition of sidewalks are really going to make a vast improvement to this corridor. It is currently on schedule to be completed at the end of this construction season.
