Dublin City Council on Sept. 11 unanimously approved the city's capital improvements program for 2018 through 2022.

The five-year plan includes notable recreation and infrastructure improvement projects and includes $197.7 million in proposed projects.

Included in the programming is Riverside Crossing Park, at a cost of $18.4 million.

The park, which would feature plazas, lawn space, trails and river access, doesn't yet have a completion date. The city is already building the park's west plaza.

Programming also features major roadway improvements.

A four-lane boulevard will be built at a cost of $20.4 million to extend Tuttle Crossing Boulevard from Wilcox Road to Avery Road. Construction is slated for 2019.

Dublin won't foot the entire bill, however. The city of Columbus is expected to fund $2.8 million and private developer contributions are to be $492,800.

The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission is expected to fund $7 million. The amount of Columbus funding could change based on analysis still underway to determine what work is specific to Dublin and what work relates to the overall project.

An $8 million project is planned for 2020 to widen Avery Road to four lanes between Woerner-Temple Road and Rings Road West.

Infrastructure improvements also include more than $4 million in water-line extensions and more than $7.4 million in sewer extensions.
