A storm water detention pond will be created in the area of the curves. Heavy equipment will be stripping top soil and excavating alongside the current roadway and preparing storm sewer dranage fixtures.
Paragon Road, from Spring Valley Pike to the Centerville corporation line, will be closed until spring 2013 for a major widening project by Washington Township.
Work includes moving utility lines, extending two culverts that cross under the road, and finishing the west side of a small bridge north of Paragon Mills Drive. Rebuilding of the road will begin in early spring as weather allows, with completion estimated at mid-2013, according to Public Works Director Mike Wanamaker.
The Paragon project includes softening two sharp curves and adding curb, gutter and storm sewers. Crews will install a sidewalk on the east side of Paragon and add fencing, landscaping and trees. The intersection at Paragon and Spring Valley also will be widened and aligned, with a turn lane added for traffic turning from Paragon onto Spring Valley. Turn lanes also will be added at two plat entrances – St. Simons Lane and Paragon Mills Drive.
“The improved road will help traffic flow and encourage pedestrians to enjoy this area of the township,” Wanamaker said. The project is offset by a $1 million Ohio Public Works Commission Grant.
One commercial street and 15 residential streets will be resurfaced as part of this year’s Street Improvement Program.
The program includes asphalt resurfacing of residential streets and 1,200 feet of concrete work on Success Lane, a commercial street located south of Austin Boulevard. Altogether, streets will receive about 5,300 tons of asphalt covering about 48,700-square yards.
The Street Improvement Program also includes more than 9,000 feet of curb repair on streets that are included in this year’s program. Montgomery County Environmental Services will include 750 linear feet of waterline replacement on Cherbourg Place and Manorside Court.
With the exception of Success Lane, resurfacing will take place in the northwest part of the township. Because many of this year's streets have a concrete base, it will be necessary to mill through layers of asphalt fo determine if the concrete needs to be repaired before resurfacing can take place.
Resurfacing work began in the spring and will conclude in late summer. The entire length of these streets will be resurfaced, unless otherwise indicated:
Grants Ridge Circle
Grants View Court
Saint Laurent Circle
Cedar Pines Court
Penbrooke Trail, west of Yankee
Tarryton Road, about 250’ north of Penbrooke
