About the Project

The two-lane country road extends from Social Row Road to the Warren County line and runs along the east side of Oak Grove Park, the third largest park in Centerville/Washington Township. Gebhart provides one of two access points to the park.

The project includes widening lanes to current safety standards and installing curb, gutter and storm sewers from Social Row Road to near the south end of the park. The entire road will be resurfaced to the Warren County line, according to Public Works Director Mike Wanamaker.

The approximate cost for the project is $821,000 which is offset with a $200,000 grant from the Ohio Public Works Commission. An early fall completion date is anticipated, dependent upon weather.
