This fall, Duke Energy will complete several gas main projects within the City of Loveland.
East Loveland Avenue: Oct. 24-Dec. 2
Duke Energy is replacing gas main along East Loveland Avenue. The approximate location is near the East Loveland Nature Preserve and Fifth Street. Project dates are Oct. 24-Dec. 2, 2022, with work hours from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
One lane of the road will be closed, and temporary traffic signals will be used to keep vehicles moving. Some on-street parking along East Loveland Avenue will be restricted during the project.
Historic Downtown Loveland: Nov. 9 - Dec. 30
Gas main replacement will occur in several locations in Historic Downtown Loveland:
- the intersection of State Route 48/Second Street (near Graeter’s and the fire station)
- along East Broadway Street from approximately the Five Points intersection to the trestle bridge
- and along Karl Brown Way from the trestle bridge to Harrison Avenue near Nisbet Park.
Work is scheduled for Nov. 9 -Dec. 30, 2022, and will occur Monday-Friday after 9 a.m. Overnight work will not occur during this project.
Single lanes will be closed with two-way traffic maintained by flaggers. Some sidewalk access and on-street parking will be restricted as needed to facilitate the work. Duke Energy is required to notify local business owners and residents a minimum of two days prior to work if on-street parking will be affected.
State Route 48/Oakland Road: Late November 2022 - January 2023
Duke Energy will complete approximately 3-4 weeks of gas main work along State Route 48/Oakland Road from late November 2022 to January 2023. The road will be affected from the east end of St. Columban’s property (just past the football field) to the intersection of Loveland-Miamiville Road/Oak Street.
This project will require day and night work. For day work, single lanes will be closed with two-way traffic maintained by flaggers. For night work, a portion of State Route 48 (at the Loveland-Miamiville intersection) will need to be fully closed for part of the project. The road will be fully closed from 9 p.m. – 6 a.m. with the road reopened during the day. Overnight traffic will be detoured.
