West Franklin St. Repairs
The City of Centerville is working with Montgomery County to make repairs to West Franklin Street between State Route 48 and Normandy Lane. These repairs include a water main replacement, curb and sidewalk repairs and various storm sewer repairs. These improvements are anticipated to extend the life of curbs and sidewalks and improve drainage. All work will be done in the road or public right-of-way.
The contractor will begin mobilization and set-up the week of June 15 and plans to begin construction the week of July 6. This work will require lane closures on West Franklin beginning the week of July 6. Crews will minimize impact by doing as much of the work at night as possible.
Will this impact traffic?
This work will require lane closures on West Franklin Street, but at least one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction. Crews will minimize impact by doing as much of the work at night as possible. Access to driveways will be maintained unless curb, apron or storm sewer work is being done in front of your drive specifically. The contractor will advise the City when traffic patterns are changed so staff can keep residents, businesses and visitors updated.
How long will the project take?
Every effort is being made to reduce impact to businesses. While it is difficult to predict now due to weather and other circumstances, contractor Kinnison Excavating Inc. is hoping to be done with construction in the fall.
How much will this cost?
The cost of the work is approximately $1.2 million, most of which is covered by grants. There will be no additional cost to businesses or homes.
Will my water service be disrupted?
The work is not anticipated to disrupt water service; however, there may be a 15-minute interruption once during the project to switch a valve. Crews will communicate that disruption ahead of time to property owners. A boil advisory is unlikely but possible. Of course, the City and County would notify impacted areas immediately.
How can I stay updated on the work?
The City has created an email list for those interested in new information and timeline updates on the project. If you would like to be added to that list, please contact Communications Director Kate Bostdorff or Staff Engineer Taylor Schindler.
