The city of Reynoldsburg will begin a more than $2.5 million improvement plan along Livingston Avenue beginning this spring that will include roadway rehabilitation and signal upgrades.
At the April 11 Reynoldsburg City Council meeting, council approved an approximate $2.36 million construction contract with Strawser Paving Co. Inc., in addition to a $218,000 contract with EMH&T for construction phase services that include inspection services.
Construction is anticipated to begin in May, with a completion date of mid- to late-October, Service Department Director Bill Sampson said.
The Roadway and Leisure Path Improvement Project will begin at the intersection of Livingston Avenue and Brice Road, extend about 9,700 linear feet to the east along Livingston Avenue, and terminate at the intersection with Lancaster Avenue.
The project consists of roadway rehabilitation including milling and paving, spot full-depth pavement and curb replacement. It will include the installation of ADA-compliant concrete curb ramps, construction of a multi-use path, storm drainage improvements, signal upgrades, erosion control and traffic maintenance, Sampson said.
