The Kugler Mill Road Reconstruction Project is underway. This is a joint project among Sycamore Township, Hamilton County and Greater Cincinnati Water Works which includes the total reconstruction of Kugler Mill Rd. from Blue Ash Rd. to Montgomery Rd. The installation of new watermain started in February and will run through April. Storm sewer work will then commence followed by new curbs and roadway. Rack and Ballauer Excavating Co. Inc was the successful bidder for this project in an amount of $3,721,987.40. Greater Cincinnati Waterworks is paying for the watermain portion of this project in the approximate amount of $845,000.00. A state grant is paying for 50% of the rest of the project, with Hamilton County paying for the other 50% of the roadway work, and the Township paying for the other 50% of the storm sewer, curb, and sidewalk work. The Township is using TIF funds for this project also which are generated by commercial development.

2021 Road Improvement Program

The Township has begun a very extensive repaving and curb program in the subdivisions this year, with paving and curb work being done in Kenwood, Dillonvale and the northern part of the Township. This project will cover approximately 10.25 miles of roadway, which is about 20% of the Township’s total mileage. The John R Jurgensen Company was awarded the contract for an amount of $3,130,375.60. This is another project being paid for out of Tax Increment Financing (TIF) funds that are generated by commercial development in the Township, which allows the Township to keep your taxes low and not come to you the voters for a road levy.
