Water Line Replacement on Union Cemetery- The City of Loveland successfully applied for funding from the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) for a joint project with Symmes Township and Hamilton County. The City of Loveland’s portion of the project includes a $577,750 loan with 0% interest over a 20 year term to replace the 10” diameter water line on Union Cemetery Road with a 12” diameter pipe, and a $357,550 grant for resurfacing the roadway. Hamilton County and Symmes Township each have partial grants and matching funds that they wish to contribute to additional project scope, such as full depth pavement base repairs, limited section of new sidewalk, addition of a turn lane at Lebanon Road, etc. Bids were opened on June 26, 2014. The low bid of $1,508,858.00 was submitted by Sunesis Construction. The project has been put on hold for the winter. Construction completion has been postponed until early June, 2015, due to numerous water main breaks, utility pole relocation delays, and weather conditions not suitable for paving. Work is scheduled to resume April 6, 2015, beginning with limited storm sewer work, swale re-grading, curb and berm installations, then pavement repairs, limited driveway culvert replacements, limited driveway apron replacements, road resurfacing, limited sidewalk, and followed by yard restoration.

Annual Street Project– The annual street program was budgeted to have only $326,780 in 2015, approximately half of what is needed to maintain the City’s streets on a 15-year repaving cycle. The scope of the roadwork is currently under evaluation. Barrett Paving was awarded the 2014 contract, and has the option to hold their unit prices and renew their contract in 2015.
Annual Sidewalk Program– Inspections of existing conditions of sidewalks and driveway aprons are underway in the Fox Meadow Farms subdivision on Heidelberg Dr., Rollins Dr., Lindenhall Dr., Wilmington Dr., Rutgers Ct., Lycoming St. and Lebanon Rd north of West Loveland Avenue.
