City of Urbana’s 2022 Asphalt Program Scheduled to Start; Part of the City’s Planned 2022 Asphalt Projects
On Tuesday, August 2, 2022, A&B Asphalt Corporation and its subcontractors are scheduled to start work on the City of Urbana’s 2022 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 to maintain traffic.
Under this program, the following streets are scheduled to be resurfaced: Tanglewood Drive; Nova Drive from Camelot Drive to Eastview Drive; Eastview Drive from Scioto Street (State Route 29) to Seville Drive; Seville Drive from New Haven Drive to Parkway Boulevard; Long Bay Drive from Seville Drive to Parkway Boulevard; Parview Court; and Lippencott Lane.
Project work is scheduled to start with milling of the existing pavement on streets that are slated for resurfacing. 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 all of the streets that are planned for resurfacing. 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. Once the chip sealing is completed, the final surface course will be installed with the adjustment of manholes and water valves and pavement striping where required to follow.
This work is under contract for $712,911.36 and includes paving projects at Melvin Miller Park. For the projects at Melvin Miller Park, the City of Urbana has secured $49,666.00 in grant funding through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ NatureWorks Program to pave and resurface a parking lot and driveways and to improve the existing pickleball courts. After Labor Day, American Pavements, Inc. is under contract to complete crack sealing of multiple city streets at a cost of $47,543.38. In August, in cooperation with Salem Township and with grant funding through the Ohio Public Works Commission, Dellinger Road between North Main Street and Clark Road/East Lawn Avenue is scheduled to be resurfaced at a cost of $132,029.50 with the city’s share being $15,010.89. Lastly, before the end of the 2022 paving season, an ODOT Urban Resurfacing Project will be undertaken on South Main Street between Pearce Place and Market Street and on North Main Street between Court Street and Washington Avenue/Gwynne Street. For that project, the city is required to provide 20% of the project cost with the low bid for that project being $925,870.94.
Salary Commission Meeting Sep. 28
The Salary Commission will be holding a meeting on September 28, 2021, at 6:00 p.m. in the lower Lobby of the Municipal Building, 205 S. Main Street, Urbana, Ohio.

During the week of August 17, 2020, M&T Excavating LLC and its subcontractors will mobilize to start work on the City of Urbana’s Phase 2A Water & Sanitary Sewer Replacement Project. This project encompasses the replacement of the existing sanitary sewer main and laterals on Scioto Street between Jefferson Avenue and the US 36/SR29 intersection near Berwick Drive/Bon Air Drive. In addition, this project will replace deteriorating water mains on Scioto Street between Jefferson Avenue and Berwick Drive; Crescent Drive; Finch Street; and Ames Avenue. As part of the water main replacement project, service lines from the main to the curb stop, fire hydrants, and valves will also be replaced.
Throughout the project, two-way traffic will be maintained on Scioto Street through a series of phased traffic control plans. In addition to one lane being maintained in each direction, Scioto Street will also continue to have a center two-way left turn lane throughout most of the project phases. To accommodate the phased traffic control plans on Scioto Street, traffic signals will be temporarily modified. For the work on Crescent Drive, Ames Avenue, and Finch Street, appropriate signage and barricades will be placed as needed to restrict these roadways to local traffic only. In addition to traffic being maintained throughout the project on Scioto Street, access to businesses will also be maintained.
The purpose of this water main replacement project is to replace aging, deteriorating water mains that have experienced frequent, historic breakage. During the planning process for the water main replacement project, the sanitary sewer main was inspected and determined to warrant replacement on Scioto Street. This construction project is under contract for $1,730,090.59 with $1,398,489.79 of the project cost being water related and the remaining $331,600.80 being sanitary sewer related. To fund this construction, the City of Urbana has obtained low interest loan funding from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency for the water portion and the Ohio Water Development Authority for the sanitary sewer portion.
The construction will be completed in two phases with the work on Scioto Street starting in August and being completed on or before November 13, 2020. The replacement sanitary sewer on Scioto Street will be installed first with the replacement water main on Scioto Street being installed second. By the fall completion date, these installations will be completed on Scioto Street, and the trenches will be repaired and other restoration work completed. Scioto Street is scheduled for complete resurfacing in the summer of 2021 under a separate ODOT Urban Resurfacing Program.
Between November 13, 2020 and June 26, 2021, the contractor will be completing the water main installation work on Crescent Drive, Ames Avenue, and Finch Street. Depending on the weather during the winter months, the contractor may periodically be forced to cease work on the project. In addition to the water main replacement work on Crescent Drive, the sidewalk and curb and gutter will be replaced on Crescent Drive in accordance with a council resolution. By the summer 2021 completion date, the work on Crescent Drive, Ames Avenue, and Finch Street will be completed. As part of the project, trenches will be repaired with new asphalt and other restoration work will be completed. However, the complete resurfacing of Crescent Drive and Ames Avenue will be undertaken under a separate city contract later in 2021.
During the project, progress and project updates will be posted periodically on the city’s website here. This project page also includes a list of frequently asked questions and answers.
On Monday, August 10, 2020, Strawser Construction, Inc. of Columbus is scheduled to start work on the City of Urbana’s 2020 Microsurfacing 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. Brief closures of cross streets are possible. Prior to the microsurfacing work, a subcontractor will remove the existing pavement markings. After the microsurfacing work is completed, temporary pavement markings will be installed on the new surface, followed by permanent markings about two weeks later.
This work is under contract for $130,037.63 and is a portion of the city’s planned asphalt maintenance and paving projects for 2020. Under this program, the following streets are scheduled to be microsurfaced: East Water Street from South Main Street to Finch Street and East Lawn Avenue from Scioto Street to Bloomfield Avenue. Microsurfacing is a pavement preservation technique that extends the useful life of the existing pavement. East Water Street was last resurfaced in 2006 and East Lawn Avenue was last resurfaced in 2009. Earlier this summer, Bituminous Pavement Systems completed the crack sealing of multiple streets citywide at a cost of $44,550.50. In September, asphalt resurfacing of several city streets under a separate contract with The Shelly Company is scheduled at a cost of $322,970.90.
