Construction Updates

The Village is replacing its water lines, streets, curbs, and driveway aprons, and performing substantial upgrades to its storm sewer system over the course of 2018. The project is scheduled for completion in December. This page is updated weekly with the latest details about the work schedule and other pertinent information.

Special notices

Street parking: The Village and the contractor have determined that street parking will not be permitted anywhere in the Village on weekdays during working hours (7 am – 5:30 pm) during the current pavement excavation and reconstruction phase of the project. The only exception is that residents whose streets have been closed for paving may park in designated areas as indicated on the door hangers that you receive. Please be on the lookout for those.

Trash collection: Curbside trash collection is scheduled to resume throughout the Village on Monday November 12. However depending on the timing collection may not be possible on streets that are being paved Monday. Residents on Crescent Court, Carrington Court, Pioneers Court, and the north side of Riverglen Drive between Olentangy Boulevard and the Circle may therefore wish to move their bins to an accessible (paved) location to ensure that they are collected, or deposit their trash in the collection bin on Olentangy Boulevard. The bin will be removed on Monday so any deposits should be made over the weekend. Please contact Mayor Eric MacGilvray if you need help getting your trash up to the bin.

School bus service: School buses will resume their normal route through the Village on Monday November 12, entering via Riverglen Drive and exiting via Southington Avenue, with stops at 120 W Riverglen, 258 Frontenac, 189 W Southington, and 65 W Southington.

Next 7 days (November 10 – November 17)

  1. Crescent Court, Carrington Court, Pioneers Court, and the north side of Riverglen Drive between Olentangy Boulevard and the Circle will be paved on Monday, weather permitting. Note that this is not the final overlay of asphalt, and the pavement surface will be 1.5 inches below the top edge of the concrete gutter pan. The final overlay will occur once all other work requiring heavy equipment has been completed.
  2. The remaining driveway aprons will be poured on Saturday, November 10.
  3. Connection of homes to the new water system and connection of the new system to the Columbus water main on High Street has been completed. The contractor will be removing the remaining elements of the old water system – hydrants and abandoned services – over the next couple of weeks.
  4. Coring of curbs and re-connection of roof drain pipes will begin. It would be helpful to the contractor if residents could mark the location of roof drains that are not clearly visible, and/or contact Mayor Eric MacGilvray with information about hidden or non-standard roof drain situations.
  5. Spot repairs will be made to damaged curbs and gutters.
  6. Final grading of yards and other finish work will begin.

Next 14 days (November 10 – November 24)

  1. Removal of elements of the old water system will be completed.
  2. Coring of curbs and re-connection of roof drain pipes will continue.
  3. Final grading of yards and other finish work will continue.
  4. Asphalt and paver driveways will be restored.

Next month (November 10 – December 10)

  1. Coring of curbs and re-connection of roof drain pipes will be completed.
  2. Final grading of yards and other finish work will be completed. The contractor will return to re-seed in the spring as necessary.
  3. The final overlay of asphalt will be completed, weather permitting.

General notes on construction

  1. Please do not disturb stakes or flags that have been placed within the right of way. These markers indicate the location of underground utilities. If markers are removed then the utilities must be re-marked and may be inadvertently damaged, which will delay construction and add to the cost of the project.
  2. Please do not disturb materials within the right of way, such as manholes, castings, and pipes, and please avoid any piping or tubing that extends up from the ground. Again, damage to these items will delay construction and add to the cost of the project.
