Burdsall / Allentown / Thompson Reconstruction

If anyone has special needs for the use of their driveway, please let Straight Edge know ASAP

Burdsall & Allentown 

Yard restoration is scheduled to start the week of 9/18 on Burdsall starting at the beginning of the project near Gettysburg and working toward Allentown.  The work will take up to 2 weeks to complete Burdsall and Allentown.  Sod will be used between the curb and sidewalk.  A combination of sod and seed/straw will be used at the back of the walk depending on the level of disturbance to the yard.  The surface course for all sections of Burdsall, Allentown, and Thompson will be complete at the end of early October.

Thompson – Gettysburg to Beechwood

All of the curb and gutter work is complete.  The week of 9/18, the remaining driveways and sidewalks will be completed.  Also during the week of 9/18, the asphalt in the center of the street will be reconstructed.  Full closure of the street between Gettysburg and Allentown will occur during this time.  Asphalt base is schedule to be complete by the end of the week (9/22).  Yard restoration will move to Thompson as soon as the crew has their work complete on Burdsall and Allentown. 

The surface course of asphalt will be performed on all 3 streets at the same time. That day is not scheduled yet but should be around the first or second week of October.  The contractor and city will provide as much notice as possible to residents ahead of that day because there will be no parking that day.

All work is scheduled to be complete including restoration by mid-October.

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 widening is likely to occur all on the west side (Beechwood Rd. side) of the highway.  Work should begin near Woodlawn with a gradual widening to a full lane width allowing traffic to turn left without impeding through traffic on NB Dixie.  Included in this project will likely be drainage improvements including curb and gutter between Woodlawn & Beechwood Rd. The transportation cabinet’s local District 6 office is in the design phase for this project. 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.

Orphanage Road Sidewalk

The sidewalk project along Orphanage Rd. between Jerry’s Lane & Ivy Hill is progressing. The city took another look at adding curb between the new sidewalk and the car lane on Orphanage and found that it is a feasible option to address drainage issues. Safety for pedestrians along this stretch will be greatly enhanced with the addition of curb and gutter. Construction is scheduled for spring 2018.

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.
