Paul Gruner, P.E., P.S., Montgomery County Engineer, wishes to announce that the Miamisburg-Springboro Road Project between Peacock Lane and Medlar Road, Miami Township, has been substantially completed and opened to traffic. A final inspection will be held on Friday, December 2, 2011, and there may be some minor clean-up work following that. The construction was started in July, 2011, and the contract completion date is July, 2012, but the general contractor, Demmy Sand & Gravel, LLC, has completed the project 8 months ahead of schedule. Mr. Gruner thanks Demmy, LJB, Inc. (design engineering and surveying), Thelen Associates (Testing), the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (Administering the Federal funds), the Ohio Department of Transportation, (Project oversight for the Federal funds), the Ohio Public Works Commission (Administering the State Capital Improvement funds), and the design and construction administration staff of the Montgomery County Engineer's Office for their diligent, timely work on the project.
The project construction cost of $1,497,000 was funded with $1,043,000 in Federal Surface Transportation Program funds through MVRPC and $374,000 in State Capital Improvement funds through OPWC. The remaining construction cost, the design engineering, and right-of-way acquisition costs were funded by the County's Road Auto License and Gas Tax funds.
