Beavercreek, Ohio – Street resurfacing projects this year in Beavercreek will be postponed and reduced.
As noted by the city, existing financing allots $2.3 million each year for road maintenance. However, the contract offer for this year’s work was 25 percent more than the previous year’s contract bid. The increase in material and labor expenses is cited as a cause, according to the city.
“This is not sustainable. Currently, the city does not have any funding for sidewalk replacement or stormwater projects, so as the cost of street projects increases, so does the city’s backlog of infrastructure, “said Landrum.
Despite the fact that one of the projects, resurfacing North Fairfield Road, had a $1.3 million budget, the lowest bid submitted for the job came in at $2.3 million. The project has been postponed until 2023.
