With several construction projects going on, here are a few updates:

Butler-Warren Road is expected to be open by October 10,2014.

The re-sealing of the parking lot at Monroe Community Park is expected to
be completed by October 11, 2014.

October 8 through October 10, 2014, the Ohio Department of Transportation
will be adding a friction treatment to the two west bound ramps on State
Route 63 to State Route 4.  One ramp will be closed at a time between the
hours of 9:00 pm and 5:00 am.

Periodic lane closures this week on State Route 63 to repair a drainage
issue on the north side of State Route 63 just west of Lawton Avenue.

Installation of the water main across South Main Street, in preparation of
the Mason Avenue Reconstruction Project will continue.  Work will be
performed in one lane at a time, but there may be traffic delays during
this work.

Mason Avenue, between South Main Street and South Sands Avenue, will
experience road closures for the replacement of the water main,
storm sewer catch basins, concrete curb and gutter, and full depth
reclamation of the asphalt.  Local traffic will be maintained and school
bussing will continue as normal.

Milling of Yankee Road and Todhunter Road to the corporation limit,
Woodland Court, and Doverdale Drive from Wexford Drive to Fox Run Place
will continue.  Paving of these streets is expected to take place this
week, weather permitting.

don't get your hopes up.

Lebanon, Ohio – Neil F. Tunison, the Warren County Engineer, is announcing that effective immediately, the bridge replacement and road closure for Bridge #0002-0916 located on Butler-Warren Road, north of Nickel Road, shall be extended to an anticipated reopening date of Friday October 17, 2014 – weather permitting. The extension is due to unforeseen construction delays. The extension is  unfortunate and the public’s cooperation is very much appreciated.

 

The detour will utilize Kyles Station Road, Cincinnati-Dayton Road, Lebanon Street, Gallaher Street, and Mason Road.

From FB


Restoration work on the exterior of the City Building has begun. After finding some original construction defects and areas that had failed on the roof and building exterior, the City is moving forward with a $800,000 restoration project designed by KZF Architects. The City attempted to seek compensation for poor performance from the original contractor of the building, but since that company was no longer in business, attempts to recuperate costs in court were not successful.

The project will replace the standing metal seam roof with shingles, replace flat roof areas, restore the building façade in some areas that roof leaks and water infiltration have caused damage and improve overall roof drainage. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year, with some minor repair work being completed in the spring if weather does not allow for total completion.

The city got ripped off by the builder of the city buildings. On the outside they look nice, but they were never weather tight. 

When the city gets ripped off its the same thing as its tax payer residents getting ripped off.

And believe me when I tell you that I couldn't have been more furious when council was presented with all of the information regarding what all is wrong with the building. The city tried to go after those responsible for this absolute travesty but, surprise surprise, they're no longer in business and the bonding agency was even less helpful.

This is money that I didn't feel that we, the people, should have been on the hook for... but, in the end, we ultimately were. I wish that more could have been done during the construction of the City Building to protect the peoples' money.

I wonder if they were the cheapest bid for the build out? I swear, cheaper is almost NEVER better. It means something if a contractor is reputable, and dependable.

Thanks for your input on this issue. As you know I've been following this for a long time.


Dateline January 26, 2011 Bill Brock reported that the workmanship was poor and the tower was leaking, causing significant damage to the inside of the building. There is also damage to the drywall. No dangerous mold at this time. First estimate to fix the damage from a poorly constructed clocktower is $204,000.00 was discussed here on Jan 26.

The beauty of Free Market is the fact that they are allowed to fold.
Then they are not held accountable.

Its a good thing. No regulations.
