Beginning Monday, July 26, 2021, crews will begin mobilizing to begin construction on the South High Street Streetscape Enhancement Project. As soon as August 9, the southbound lane of South High Street from West Bridge Street/S.R. 161 to John Wright Lane will be closed. This will include the on-street parking spaces on the west side of the road and intermittent sidewalk closures.
Southbound traffic will be routed west to Frantz Road, then south to Rings Road, and east back to South High Street. The lane closure is expected to remain during the duration of the project, which is anticipated to be completed in early November (weather depending). Work hours are 7 a.m. – 7 p.m., but the lane closure will be in effect 24/7 for the duration of the project.
During non-work hours, construction barrels and signage will be placed along the work zone for safety while northbound traffic continues to travel through the work zone. Schedules are subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Should the project extend beyond November 24, a City representative will deliver another notification to your residence or business.
The project will excavate parking spaces along west side of South High Street to John Wright Lane and install a Suspended Pavement System under the paving. This system will provide the proper soil and rooting place for the new street trees planned for installation. Furthermore, 30 inch high single and double well, stone retaining walls will be installed between the existing sidewalk and street to accommodate the new trees which also includes slot drains to ensure the sidewalk will drain behind the short walls. As the work will impact the brick sidewalk, the contractor will also revise the existing sidewalk to repair any settlement issues and joint / setting bed washout areas. Finally the project will repave the width of South High Street from West Bridge Street south to beyond John Wright Lane 0.07 miles, as defined by Dublin’s Engineering Division’s repaving program.
We will make every effort to reduce the amount of inconvenience to you, and we thank you for your cooperation during these necessary and important infrastructure improvements.
