Gahanna's summer road maintenance program could be coming to a street near you.

Gahanna's summer road maintenance program could be coming to a street near you.

Gahanna City Council last week approved the program, which will begin in early June. The maintenance program does not include major projects, such as widening East Johnstown Road, said Mike Andrako, assistant city engineer.

"We consider crack seal and slurry seal to be preventive maintenance, which all residential streets will receive before ultimately getting repaved," he said. By using these preventative maintenance techniques on residential streets, "we can expect to see an average pavement life of 25 years."

Streets getting the maintenance are as follows:

Creighton Court, from Ridenour Road to the end of the court.

Crossing Creek North, from Deer Meadow Drive to Crossing Creek Way and Crossing Creek North.

Dellfield Way, from Schylder Way to Caroway Boulevard and Dellfield Lane.

Lintner Street, from Shull Avenue to the end of the court.

Riva Ridge Boulevard, from 350 feet east of Ridge Place to Black Gold Avenue.

Venetian Way, from Dark Star Avenue to Riva Ridge Boulevard.

After the maintenance is done, the rebuilds will begin. The city's contractors dig the old street down to the under-pavement or base and make a new street:

Triumph Way: This year, the city plans to rebuild Triumph Way from Bonnington Way to Empire Drive. It will get a new concrete base, curbs, curb ramps and pavement.

North Hamilton Road: Another construction project this summer will be the work at the OSU Family Physicians' site in the old Big Bear building. The city contractor will align the drives and install curb ramps for the new signal being installed on Hamilton Road. Work to install the signal is expected to begin in the fall.

Coronation Avenue: The summer construction program will include upgrading all of the curbs in the street-overlay program to make them compliant with the Americans with Disability Act. The act requires streets and buildings to be accessible to those who are handicapped.

"This year, we will be reconstructing ramps at multiple intersections along Coronation Avenue and at the intersection of Morrison Road and Hamilton Road," Andrako said.

Olde Ridenour Road: A 250-foot stretch of Olde Ridenour Road, north of Stonegate Circle, will be widened from 16 feet to 23 feet, Andrako said. A curb will be added on the west side.
