Road Construction Updates

The City of Kettering Engineering Department will be very active in 2017 with construction projects throughout  Kettering.  Details on the major projects are provided below and will be updated weekly.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Engineering Department at 296-2436.

Stroop Road Bridge

PROJECT UPDATE:

January 29, 2018 Update:   

Stroop Road Bridge is open to traffic.  Additional restoration work is scheduled for this Spring, and may require intermittent lane closures while maintaining traffic.

 East Stroop Road will be closed between Woodman Drive and Glenheath / Braddock intersection            East Stroop Road Bridge Replacement Detour Map
In 2016, the City of Kettering completed a repaving project on the portion of Stroop Road between Shroyer Road and Dorothy Lane.  During the project, existing deterioration in the beams of the bridge on Stroop Road, approximately 1,600 feet east of Woodman Drive, was exposed and in several areas the milling further compromised the integrity of the bridge.

 

The Montgomery County Engineer owns the bridge, and has determined that temporary safety measures must remain in place until the bridge can be replaced. These measures include reducing traffic to one lane in each direction along Stroop Road, and a 15 ton maximum weight restriction for vehicles traveling over the bridge.

In the coming months please be alert for the start of construction and necessary traffic control measures.  We do anticipate that this section of Stroop Road will be closed entirely for portions of the project.  Please watch our website, monthly Starter e-newsletter and social media accounts for the most up to date information on the project timeline and traffic impacts.

 

Wilmington Pike

PROJECT UPDATE:  

January 29, 2018 Update:

The project is substantially complete.  Additional restoration work is scheduled for this Spring, and may require intermittent lane closures.
 The City of Kettering remains committed to acting as a catalyst for reinvestment in Wilmington Pike for both economic purposes and for the impact the corridor has on our residents as well.

2017 will be another year of major reinvestment in the Wilmington Pike corridor.

This summer the City will begin major streetscape improvements on the Wilmington Pike corridor between Stroop and Marshall Roads.  Both sides of the street will have new streetlights installed and abundant street trees planted.  On the west side of the corridor a brand new 8 foot multiuse path will be installed, offering a connection to existing regional bikeways and improved pedestrian access to businesses.
