Due to continued pavement deterioration, Carver Road will be reconstructed from Malsbary Road to Anderson Way. The project will also involve utility adjustments, installation of new storm water system, curb and sidewalk. The contractor for the project is Sunesis Construction Co. with work beginning in August and a completion date of May 16, 2014. Access for businesses in the project area will be one way during the length of the project.

The storm water culverts on Glendale-Milford near Reed Hartman Highway and on Reed Hartman Highway south of Cornell Road will be repaired with the insertion of a liner through the culvert pipe which seals and strengthens the pipe. This project was awarded to National Gunite on July 11.
The City's 2013 Paving Program was awarded to Barrett Paving Materials. Streets involved in this year's program include Ashfield Drive, CEI Drive, Corporate Drive, Deerfield Road, Luschek Drive, Old Plainfield Road, Techwoods Circle, Bluewing Terrace, Lobelia Drive, Plainfield Road, Southgate Lane, Waxwing Drive, the intersections of Kenwood Road/Towne Square Avenue/YMCA Drive, the intersection of Hunt Road and Bluewing Terrace and Kenwood Road from Glendale-Milford to Cornell.
The City continues its efforts to provide connectivity between neighborhoods and businesses to frequent destinations around Blue Ash (Parks, Recreation Center, Municipal and Safety Center, Downtown, Golf Course, etc). In 2013, sidewalk will be installed by Ford Development Corp. on the west side of Reed Hartman Highway from Osborne Boulevard to Cornell Road. Sidewalk will be install by Sunesis Construction Company on the south side of Cooper Road from Plainfield Road to Waxwing Drive and a bike path on the east side of Plainfield Road from Cooper Road to Glendale-Milford Road.
TRAFFIC SIGNAL UPGRADES
The City of Blue Ash has an ongoing program to upgrade the traffic signals throughout the City from incandescent lights to LED (light emitting diode) lights. The LED lights use significantly less electricity, last longer between failures, provide brighter signals and support battery back-up systems at major intersections. Additionally, “count-down” pedestrian signals are being installed at intersections with wide roadways (such as Reed Hartman Highway) to assist pedestrians and battery backup units are being installed at major intersections. Please check back for 2013 traffic signal project information.
