Amberley Village is excited to announce the launch of its Accelerated Streets Program, or ASP, which represents an investment of $6.7 million over eight years to make significant advancements on our street conditions.
A 2012 assessment by our Village Engineer showed that while 85% of Village lane miles were in fair to good condition, 15% were in poor condition, including concrete base streets that have been paved over with asphalt, such as those on North and South Farmcrest Drives.
Staff has pursued various grants and funding mechanisms for street reconstruction of North Farmcrest, South Farmcrest and Kincaid Road through the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) The Village has successfully secured a grant in the amount of $145,000. The Village was approved for a loan in the amount of $217,347 from the Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) related to North Farmcrest. And the Village was successful in its application for $71,000 from the Municipal Road Fund (MRF) administered by Hamilton County toward work on Kincaid Road.
To date, the Village has been awarded a total of $433,254 in grants and loans toward the project. The total preliminary construction cost estimate for the reconstruction of Farmcrest streets is $1.6 million.
The next step for the first phase of the project is to award the engineering and design contract in April. The timeframe for engineering, survey and design will be between late April 2021 and January 2022. The project will be bid in February 2022 with construction likely beginning in the late Spring of 2022 and concluding in the Fall of 2022.
A tentative projected schedule is available via the button below, with projects yet to be determined marked “Additional Streets to Be Determined.” These projects will be assigned on an as-needed basis as the target date approaches.
