2018 Resurfacing Program
The Road Department is preparing for the 2018 Resurfacing Program. Residents on streets scheduled for resurfacing will receive prior notification of the details regarding temporary lane closures or parking restrictions if applicable. All streets on this year’s resurfacing schedule have been crack sealed by Miami Township crews prior to the resurfacing applications. Three (3) street sections will receive an asphalt overlay through Montgomery County’s Asphalt Resurfacing Program and three (3) streets will receive a preventive maintenance Micro-surfacing treatment. One (1) street section on Washington Church Road from the Spring Valley Pike intersection south one-half mile will be resurfaced through the ODOT/ MVRPC roadway resurfacing grant program. The Township received over $68,000 in grant funds for this project.
The following street(s) will receive an asphalt overlay through Montgomery County’s Asphalt Resurfacing Program. These streets will also receive a preparatory intermediate surface layer applied by an independent contractor prior to the surface course applied by Montgomery County.
- Byers Road (Lyons Road intersection North to jurisdictional line)
- Kingsridge Drive (SR 725 to Washington Park Drive)
- Spring Valley Pike ( SR 741 East to Venture Loop)
The following streets will receive Micro-surfacing:
- Cobblegate Drive
- Mays Avenue
- Orchard Run Road
A bidding specifications packet was compiled by the Public Works Director and the project will be awarded to the lowest and best bidder. NOTE: Cost for materials increased more than 30% from the 2016 bid prices.
Budgeting for Roadway Improvements
Nearly $300,000 has been budgeted for roadway resurfacing in past years, but due to the decline in revenues the resurfacing budget will be greatly reduced after 2016. There is over 90 linear miles of roadway in the Township. Streets are evaluated and resurfaced based on the severity of deterioration.
