City of Urbana’s 2021 Asphalt Program Scheduled to Start; Final Part of the City’s 2021 Asphalt Projects
On Friday, September 24, 2021, The Shelly Company and its subcontractors are scheduled to start work on the City of Urbana’s 2021 Asphalt Program. All work is weather permitting. Parking restrictions will be posted within work areas, and vehicles parked in violation will be towed. In addition, flaggers will be used by the contractor to maintain traffic.
Under this program, the following streets are scheduled to be resurfaced: Crescent Drive between Finch Street and Ames Avenue; Ames Avenue between Scioto Street and Amherst Drive; Patrick Avenue between Scioto Street and South Jefferson Avenue (State Route 54), Washington Avenue between North Main Street and East Lawn Avenue; Carson Street between Boyce Street and Urbana High School; Glenn Avenue between Miami Street and just north of West Court Street; West Court Street between Glenn Avenue and North Oakland Street; West Court Street between North Edgewood Avenue and the eastern dead end of West Court Street; West Church Street between North Rohrer Street and North Edgewood Avenue; and South Rohrer Street between Miami Street and South Oakland Street. In addition, full depth pavement repairs are planned on Muzzy Road.
Project work is scheduled to start with milling of the existing pavement on streets that are slated for resurfacing. This milling work will be completed by a subcontractor and is anticipated to take approximately three days. After milling, pavement repairs will be made to the existing pavement. Once the milling process and pavement repair work is complete, a subcontractor is scheduled to chip seal the existing pavement surfaces on Ames Avenue, Patrick Avenue, Carson Street, Glenn Avenue, West Court Street, West Church Street, and South Rohrer Street. Chip sealing is installed as an interlayer to reduce future cracking and moisture penetration between the existing asphalt and the new pavement surface and is intended only as a temporary driving surface. The pavement resurfacing work by The Shelly Company, including the full depth repairs on Muzzy Road, is anticipated to take approximately 6 days to complete with scheduling planned to avoid interruptions near the Urbana High School campus. Once all paving work is completed, subcontractors will adjust manholes and water valves and restripe pavement markings where required.
This work is under contract for $504,357.88 and is the final part of the city’s planned asphalt maintenance and paving projects for 2021. Earlier this summer, Strawser Construction, Inc. completed the crack sealing of multiple streets around the city at a final cost of $49,146.90. The Aero-Mark Company also completed pavement striping within the city earlier this year at a cost of $6,350.30. In addition, Scioto Street was paved through an ODOT project with city being required to contribute 20% of the cost or $123,984.00. In total, these four projects represent a local investment in 2021 of $683,839.08 into the maintenance and improvement of existing city streets.
