The Road Department is preparing for the 2018 Resurfacing Program. Residents on streets scheduled for resurfacing will receive prior notification of the details regarding temporary lane closures or parking restrictions. All streets on this year’s resurfacing schedule have been crack sealed by Miami Township crews prior to the resurfacing applications. Four (4) street sections will receive an asphalt overlay through Montgomery County’s Asphalt Resurfacing Program and three (3) streets will receive a Microsurfacing treatment.
In 2018, a portion of Washington Church Road is going to be resurfaced through an ODOT/ MVRPC grant program. The Township will receive over $68,000 in grant funds to resurface the roadway. The roadway will be resurfaced starting at the Spring Valley Pike intersection and proceeding south approximately one-half mile.
The following street(s) will receive an asphalt overlay through Montgomery County’s Asphalt Resurfacing Program. These streets will also receive a preparatory intermediate surface layer applied by an independent contractor prior to the surface course applied by Montgomery County.
Byers Road (north of Lyons Road intersection to Township line)
Spring Valley Pike (SR 741 to The Exchange at Spring Valley entrances)
Kingsridge Drive (SR 725 to Washington Park Drive)
Washington Church Drive (ODOT/MVRPC Grant Program)
The following streets will receive Microsurfacing:
Orchard Run Road
A bidding specifications packet was compiled by the Public Works Director and the project will be awarded to the lowest and best bidder. NOTE: In 2017 the cost for materials increased 25% from the 2016 bid prices.
Budgeting for Roadway Improvements
Nearly $300,000 has been budgeted yearly for roadway resurfacing in the past, but due to the decline in revenues the resurfacing budget has been reduced. There are over 90 linear miles of roadway in the Township. Streets are evaluated and resurfaced based on the severity of deterioration.
