As the calendar turns to June and the summer months, plans for Groveport's annual street-maintenance program will be carried out in various parts of the city.

Columbus Asphalt Paving, the low bidder that also was awarded contracts in 2016 and 2015, will complete the work.

The total project cost is $600,145, according to City Administrator Marsha Hall.

"Available from appropriations is $450,000 (from) the street fund, $100,000 from the stormwater fund and $396,100 from the street fund, which was included for work not being performed," Hall said.

Work on the East Bixby Road project, which included repaving the street from Ebright Road to U.S. Route 33, has been postponed until crews with Columbia Gas of Ohio finish replacing a large transmission line in the area, Hall said.

Because of that, she said, four additional streets have been added to the maintenance program list:

* Tallman Street south of the Cherry Street intersection to a point south of the Green Avenue intersection.

* Elm Street from West Street east to Brook Alley.

* Elm Street from Front Street east to the Town Center parking lot.

* Grove Pointe Drive from the west side of the entry median, west to near 4827 Grove Pointe Drive.

* Main Street/Hendron Road/Tallman Street intersection.

* West Street and Kinsel Avenue, from near Green Avenue, south to and including Kinsel Avenue to the cul-de-sac.

* Lambert Street from the intersection with West Street.

* Firehouse Lane from east of the intersection with Hamilton Road east to near Madison Lane.

* Elm Street from near Brook Alley east to the intersection with Front Street.

Crews will perform work that includes spot full-depth pavement repair and mill-and-fill, rebuilding and replacing curbs and ramps when needed.

Two other major road projects are continuing this summer, including West Bixby Road reconstruction from Bixby Ridge Drive east to in front of Madison Christian School. It's expected to be completed by mid-August.

Also, reconstruction of Hendron Road from Main Street to Glendening Drive and Marlowa Drive will be completed at a cost of $2.2 million.

Both projects received funding from Ohio Public Works Commission grants.
