The reconstruction of South Main Street in Dayton will begin Monday, June 23. The project consists of widening South Main Street from four lanes to five lanes (including a center left-turn lane), plus new sidewalks, new lighting and a retaining wall.
The initial phase of construction will involve utility work including replacement of water lines, starting at Stewart Street and working northward.
Construction is expected to be complete by October 1, 2015, and traffic delays are expected throughout the project. Patterson Boulevard is suggested as an alternate route.
The general contractor for the project is Complete General Construction of Columbus, Ohio. The total cost is $7.1 million. Funding was provided by Federal STP and CMAQ funds, ODOT Urban Paving funds, OPWC State Issue 1 funds, Water Distribution funds, and City of Dayton General Capital funds.
