The 2016 street maintenance program is wrapping up with work now substantially complete in all neighborhoods. Pavement markings still need to be added in several locations, but no traffic impacts are expected.
The City thanks residents for their patience as roads were improved in the following neighborhoods this year:
- Muirkirk Drive, Laidon Court and Stratton Lane
- Glenaire Drive, Glenamoy Court and Glenliven Court
- Rothesay Drive, Rothesay Court and Preswick Court
- Amberleigh Way, Glencullen Court, Gillingham Way and Autumnwood Way
- O’Shaughnessy Hills (Arrowhead Road, Westbury Road, Forest Hill Road and Woodland Drive)
- Brandonway Drive
- Valley Stream Drive and Running Deer Place
- Shier-Rings Road
- Moors Place
- Wynford Drive, Wismer Circle, Worsham Way, Whigham Court
- Holt Road
- Old Wilcox Road
- Tuttle Road
Topsoil and grass seed will be touched up throughout the project.
Please water seeded areas and do not treat them with lawn chemicals. Any utility marking flags or stakes that remain in your yard may be discarded. More information is available online, and updates on the Street Maintenance improvements will be provided on this page.
What you need to know:
- All work will be performed while maintaining traffic where possible.
- Traffic will be maintained as much as possible, but drivers should expect delays due to construction activities. Traffic will regularly be limited to one lane during work hours.
- We request that residents keep vehicle travel on the road to a minimum during the construction activities.
- Please follow the “no parking” signs in the work areas.
- Your mailbox may be temporarily removed during this process. Temporary mailboxes will be placed during the project to allow for uninterrupted mail delivery. Once the improvements are done, your mailbox will be permanently reset in its original location in the same or better condition than when the project began.
Communications with Residents and Motorists
The following communication methods will be used to communicate construction information with the residents and motorists throughout the duration of this project.
- Brochures are placed on mail boxes at each residence on affected streets (see attached brochure). These brochures are distributed by Dublin staff.
- Residents whose driveways will be closed during construction will be given written notice at their front door at least 24 hours in advance of the closure. These are distributed by the contractor.
- Temporary signs are placed along streets at least 24 hours in advance of construction to notify residents and motorists of upcoming construction work and anticipated construction dates.
- When appropriate, portable message board signs are used for construction notification on arterial and collector streets.
- The City of Dublin Engineering Division street maintenance website implemented in 2010 gives current construction schedule information. This website is listed on the signs posted in advance of construction activities and in the brochure placed on mail boxes. The website is www.dublinohiousa.gov/construction.
- Due to the short notification time period for driveway closures, Dublin Engineering staff makes adjustments to the construction schedule to accommodate resident needs on a case-by-case basis.
- Social Media (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) is used to communicate timely construction updates.

How do we determine which streets to pave/repair?
The Street Maintenance Program consists of replacement of deteriorated concrete curb and gutter, street base stabilization, milling of deteriorated pavement surfaces and placement of new asphalt pavement. The factors used to prioritize and select streets for inclusion in the program include:
- Existing pavement condition index
- Type and severity of deterioration
- Average daily traffic
- Functional classification of the street
- Annual maintenance costs
- Expected economy of grouping streets by location to gain contractor efficiency and minimize neighborhood disruptions
- We also evaluate the condition of the existing curb and gutter that work is aligned with the pavement work
