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.
Sycamore Road Project:
There will be a road closure on Sycamore Road between Plainfield Road and Blue Ash Road beginning April 2, 2020 through June 5, 2020 to allow for road construction. Hamilton County Engineer News Release 03/11/2020
If you have driven through the Plainfield and Sycamore Roads intersection lately, I’m sure you have noticed there is already a big difference in the area. On Monday, September 16th the west half of the roundabout was opened to traffic and construction on the east half began. In order for this part of the roundabout to be built, the Sycamore Road leg into the intersection had to be shut down, therefore, there is no accessibility to Plainfield Road from Sycamore Road. The Sycamore Road entrance to Bechtold Park has also been closed so all access to the park must be off Plainfield Road. Construction of the roundabout is scheduled for completion around the end of November. There may be some utility or water main work during the winter months on Sycamore Road, but the road work will not start back up until the spring.
Since the roundabout will be completed this year, and due to the fact that roundabouts are new to a lot of people, we have provided links below to a video and several flyers provided by Ohio LTAP to give motorists assistance in learning how to drive through a roundabout. We hope this is helpful for everyone.
Thank You, Tracy Kellums

Kenwood Meadows Subdivision – Greater Cincinnati Waterworks Project
Greater Cincinnati Waterworks recently sent notices to those in the Kenwood Meadow Subdivision regarding preliminary work being done in the area for a future water main replacement project. This is not a Sycamore Township Maintenance Department project, rather, it is solely being conducted by Greater Cincinnati Waterworks and their contractor, Resource International, Inc.
