The City of Dayton will improve access to City Hall (101 W. Third St.) with construction of a new ADA-compliant entrance on the building’s Ludlow Street side.
The two-phase project will get underway in early March, with completion expected by Oct. 1. It will create an exterior ramp and reconstructed steps at the Ludlow entrance and modifications to the entrance’s interior area, including a lift. The existing sidewalk/slab along Ludlow, which also serves as a roof for a portion of City Hall’s lower level offices, will be fully replaced.
During construction, the main public entrance to City Hall will be on West Third Street. Until the new Ludlow entrance is in use, ADA access will continue to be available on City Hall’s third floor, via the Municipal Parking Garage at 123 W. Third St.
Parking spaces and parking meters along the east (Ludlow) side of City Hall will not be in use during construction. Metered spaces will be available on West Third Street (north side, between Main and Ludlow, and south side, across from City Hall).
During construction, the 24-hour utility payment drop-box currently located at the northeast corner of City Hall will be relocated to the west side of the building, between City Hall and the Municipal Garage.
The total cost of the improvements is approximately $950,000, an expense approved by the City Commission in January.
