Dixie/Beechwood Left Turn Lane Project
In January 2015, the Ohio Kentucky Indiana Regional Council of Governments, OKI, awarded the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet $2.2 million for the design and construction of a left turn lane on Dixie Highway to Beechwood Road. The proposed schedule called for preliminary engineering to be conducted in 2017, right-of-way in 2018 and construction in 2019. No local match will be required for the project.
A conceptual drawing was submitted as part of the application. All work is anticipated to be carried out in the public right-of-way but no specifics will be available until the design is completed. The project is being managed by Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 6 office. The latest update the City has received is that survey work for the project is currently underway. The next step involves developing a preliminary design. KYTC (Kentucky Transportation Cabinet) has been surveying the project area to prepare basemapping for the design. Design work on this project is set to begin in the coming months. The City is in close coordination with the Cabinet and will keep you posted as the project progresses.
Burdsall / Allentown / Thompson Reconstruction
Burdsall – from #116 to end
Allentown – Between Burdsall & Thompson
The City has decided to rebid the Burdsall and Allentown reconstruction project along with Thompson Avenue. In doing so, the City expects better overall prices for the work. This will also give residents the winter “off” of orange barrels. Work on Burdsall & Allentown will not begin until 2017. Work on Thompson will be staggered after Burdsall & Allentown to avoid traffic problems.
Bromley-Crescent Springs Road Project
Section one of the Bromley-Crescent Springs Road project is currently in the design stage. After collecting community input, the preferred alternative was selected by the City of Ft. Mitchell, the City of Crescent Springs, and the Kenton County Fiscal Court in the Fall of 2015. However, due to major geotechnical constraints, the initial estimate for the preferred alignment was found to be over the allotted grant budget. Working with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), the Fiscal Court asked GRW Engineering to develop an alternative that meets the original scope and budget for the project. This work is ongoing and the team anticipates presentation of the proposal by late 2017.
