City of Columbus Continues Neighborhood Improvement Through Road Resurfacing
[COLUMBUS, OH] Nearly 100 more streets in neighborhoods around the City are scheduled for resurfacing as the City of Columbus funds another phase of its annual repaving program.
"We are focused on mobility, safety and keeping the people of Columbus moving," said Councilmember Shayla Favor, chair of the Public Service and Transportation Committee. "We will continue to invest in the infrastructure of the City, and resurfacing is just one aspect of that program."
Resurfacing – 2020 Project 2 will repair and resurface 93 streets in Columbus neighborhoods and construct 330 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) curb ramps along these streets. Curb and ramp work is expected to begin before this construction season ends, and then it will resume and paving be completed when weather permits in the spring.
City Council authorized a contract on Monday with Decker Construction Co. for $10.87 million in capital improvement funds for the 2020 Project 2 resurfacing. The contract also includes some intersection improvements and Urban Infrastructure Recovery Fund neighborhood projects for resurfacing, sidewalk improvements and traffic calming.
“I am especially pleased that the city has the ability to proceed with this next package of street resurfacing projects during a challenging year,” said Jennifer L. Gallagher, Director of the Department of Public Service. “Our neighborhoods and residents are better served by this infrastructure investment to enhance the condition, function and safety of their streets.”
