Construction Project Updates

2023 Hunt Road Landslide Repair - This project involves repair of a landslide that is jeopardizing the eastbound lane of Hunt Road just west of Fox Run Apartments.  Erosion from the adjacent creek has destabilized the roadway embankment.  In order to correct the issue a soldier pile and lagging must be installed to protect against erosion and to support the roadway.  Road closure is expected to begin the week of March 27th and could last up to two months.  A detour plan can be found here.

2023 Blue Ash Sidewalk Repair Program - Patchwork repairs and replacement of existing sidewalks as indicated by the City.  Catch basin and curb repairs and replacement.  Installation of ADA compliant curb ramps with truncated domes.

2023 Luschek Drive Pipe Replacement - We would like to continue replacing the 48” pipe that runs under Luschek Dr and continues through the parking lot of the former Bonnie Lynn Bakery. Bonnie Lynn Bakery was sold and expected to be redeveloped.  We believe it is best served to replace the pipe before they begin redeveloping the lot, which will reduce construction costs. We also need to repair the outlet structure that is in the adjoining detention basin.

2022 Paving Program Update - Complete

Today a crew is finishing up resurfacing Alliance Road and Carver Road.  By noon, the 2 left turn lanes for southbound RHH to turn onto the east side of Carver Road will be closed for the paving crew to be able to resurface that section of Carver Road.  The closure will last a couple of hours and motorists can utilize Malsbary Road to access Alliance Road during the closure.  Motorists will still be able to exit out of Carver Road from Alliance and temporarily there will be minimal traffic allowed to enter from RHH.

A second paving crew is resurfacing within the Chimney Hill subdivision today.  They will be resurfacing Old Chimney Hill, Chimney Sweep, Village View, and Chimney Hill.

All paving should be completed today, weather permitting.

As of July 1, 2022, all of the milling work is complete on all of the streets in the 2022 Paving Program. Resurfacing along Kenridge and Brasher is underway and is expected to take two days, weather permitting. 

2022 Paving Program Update

On June 23, 2022, paving work will begin on Alliance Road and Carver Road.  Small pavement repairs will start the week of June 27,  when the milling is completed, and will be shortly followed by the resurfacing of the streets.  The City will mark deteriorated areas within the pavement along the milled streets for repair prior to the paving. Crews will begin repaving work in the Chimney Hill subdivision, Kenridge Drive, and Brasher Avenue.

During the next two weeks or so, there will be no parking permitted on the streets in these locations.
