Marshall Road Improvements

The City of Kettering proposes to improve Marshall Rd from Wilmington Pike to East David Road.     Proposed improvements in 2026.  Construction will include:

  • Resurfacing Marshall Road from Wilmington Pike to East David Road
  • Construction of an 11-foot wide sidewalk along the south side of Marshall Road from Wilmington Pike to Lincoln Park Blvd, and along the north side of Lincoln Park Blvd from Marshall to North Marshall Road
  • Modifying the Intersection at Marshall and Lincoln Park to improve safety and better accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists
  • Upgrading curb ramps to meet American with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Repairing/replacing deteriorated curb and drive approaches, as needed

Project Timeline

A final decision regarding the preferred alternative is expected in early 2024.  Right-of-Way acquisition, based on the selected alternative, is expected to begin mid-2024.  Under the current schedule, construction is expected to begin in 2026.

Project Purpose

The purposes of this project include:

  • Resurfacing and remarking deteriorated pavement on Marshall Road
  • Improving safety at the Marshall Road and Lincoln Park intersection
  • Improving active transportation options in this area of Kettering by making safer corridors and connections for cyclist and pedestrians

Project Cost and Funding

The current estimated project cost, including both right-of-way acquisition and construction, is approximately $2.3 million dollars, costing the City $1.3 million dollars after federal funding.  Additional grant funding will be sought to reduce the City’s cost for the project.


The City of Kettering is considering a roundabout at Marshall Road and Lincoln Park Blvd. Roundabouts have many safety benefits, including:

  • Reducing the number of conflict points for both drivers and pedestrians
  • Creating a low speed environment at the intersection, reducing the likelihood of high speed crashes
  • Preventing high-angle crashes such as “T-bone” and left turn crashes.  Lower angle, low speed crashes tend to be less severe
  • Experiencing fewer and less severe crashes than traffic signals
  • Promoting continuous and efficient operations, with fewer stops, fewer hard accelerations and reduced delays for left turns
  • Additional information is available from the Federal Highway Administration at
  • Roundabouts help reduce traffic speeds and noise levels
