Construction

ROAD DEPARTMENT CONSTRUCTION

Sylvania Township has several projects scheduled throughout the 2022 construction season, including 4.96 miles of road resurfacing. All projects are tentative and have many variables that could prevent, slow, or delay them. This list does NOT include projects on County or State roads that lie within the Township.

Road Resurfacing:
As required by Ohio Revised Code Chapter 5735. The Gas Tax Fund, with Ohio Public Works Commission Grant, is funding the resurfacing and minor repair work of Flanders Rd north of Alexis Rd, Indian Ridge, Cross Trails, Crestview, Tallwood, Oakhurst, Woodside Ridgmere, Janet, Brookson, Robinson, Cherrington, Summerfield, and Covert Roads. This project was sold to Bowers Asphalt & Paving Inc. and had a completion date of October 14, 2022.  The estimated final cost is $367,919.98.

A second resurfacing project including Oak Hurst, Valley Park, Gradwohl, Shetland, Heysler, Jimson Ct., Mary Creek, and Bear Creek will be advertised for bid this spring with an estimated project cost of $638,517.00.  This project was sold to Bower Asphalt & Paving Inc. and had a completion date of October 1, 2022.  The total cost of the project was $555, 453.19.

Concrete Curb and CrossWalk Improvements:
Crosswalk, curb and catch basin repairs are scheduled this summer for many roads in the Twelve Lakes Subdivision and Forest Lakes Subdivision. Notification will be given 48 hours prior to work affecting driveways.

Storm Sewer Basin Repairs:
There are over 70 catch basin repairs located throughout the Township. These crews are small and impose minimal traffic restrictions.

 “Road Construction” is a temporary inconvenience creating long term improvements.  I am very pleased to announce that the Sylvania Township Trustees and the Lucas County Engineers Office have scheduled numerous projects for the area starting in April and completing later this summer or fall.  Collectively, these projects are estimated at several millions of dollars.  The projects consist of road resurfacing and drainage improvements; and range from residential, commercial, and main arterial roadways.  This means plenty of orange barrels!

The key purpose of our resurfacing program is to maintain the Township and county roadway system of 162 miles of roads.  Our primary objective is to achieve a reliable transportation infrastructure system to facilitate public safety, commerce and public convenience.  Additional goals include the preservation of our neighborhoods, property values, community and quality of life.  With this in mind, our Road Department, urges all motorists to please exercise caution and patience when entering, exiting and traveling through constructions zones.The Residential road resurfacing project alone consists of over 2 miles of roadways.  Also, the Lucas County Engineers Office has scheduled several road improvement projects for the main-arterial roadways in the Township.

Please remember when entering a work zone area to reduce travel speed and obey road work signage and flagman.

Thank you.
