2018 Construction Projects
Annual Road Program– The annual road program was budgeted to have $499,045 in 2018. The construction project will have a bid opening in February. The roadways planned for resurfacing will be determined in the spring. Construction is anticipated to take place over the summer. The construction contract will include an option for a second program year renewal.
Parking Lot Resurfacing- A total of $93,750 was budgeted for resurfacing parking lots at various City parks. The parking lots slated for asphalt resurfacing are located in Phillips, Boike, McCoy, Lever, Kiwanis, and Betty Ray Parks. Parking lot resurfacing work is anticipated to be bid as a part of the road program contract.
West Loveland Ave. at Loveland-Madeira Rd. Traffic Signal Improvements- The City of Loveland has budgeted $205,000 for construction improvements to the traffic signal at W. Loveland Ave. and Loveland-Madeira Rd. for 2018. The intersection will receive replacements of the controller, wiring, and other features, as well as an upgrade to radar vehicular detection capability and decorative poles. TEC Engineering began the traffic study and timing plan in 2017 in anticipation of this project. The project design, advertisement and bidding will take place in early 2018.
Commerce Park and White Pillars Water Tower Maintenance- $1,150,000 has been budgeted for the maintenance of two water towers in 2018, still contingent on approval of financing. The project will include repainting of the interior and exterior of the towers. The existing towers will be inspected in early 2018 and bid documents will be created for a spring bid opening. Construction is anticipated to take place over the fall of 2018.
Water Valve Installations in the Heights Subdivision- The City of Loveland has been notified that we are expected to be awarded a $65,000 Community Development Block Grant to install several Insert-Valves on the existing 6” diameter water mains in the Heights subdivision. The valves will help isolate smaller zones within the subdivision when there is a water main break being repaired. The purpose is to have fewer residents affected by reduced water pressure or water outages during water main break repairs in the subdivision.
Bike Trail Crossing Improvements– An ODOT Safety grant is funding an estimated $46,000 construction project to improve the two road crossings of the ODNR scenic trail in downtown Loveland. Existing signage and pavement markings regarding the crossing will be removed and replaced, as needed. Crosswalk warning signs with pedestrian-activated LED rectangular rapid flashing beacons will be installed at the crossings on both W. Loveland Ave. and on Broadway St. The project will be let by ODOT in spring, 2018.
