The City of Kettering partners with Wright State University every two years to conduct a Kettering Resident Satisfaction Survey.  Emails with a link to the online survey went out yesterday from Carol Murray, our partner at Wright State, to a randomly selected group of Kettering residents.  If you received an email it is a valid survey and we appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback.

Project Description:

The city of Kettering will complete a joint project with the city of Oakwood to upgrade Shroyer Road.  This is a federally funded project planned through the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission and the Ohio Department of Transportation.  The Kettering portion of the project is from Stroop Road to the Kettering/Oakwood corporation line and is primarily an asphalt resurfacing project.  The Oakwood portion of the project runs from the Kettering/Oakwood corporation line northbound to the Oakwood/Dayton corporation line, which is the entire 1.1 mile section of Shroyer Road in Oakwood.  The Oakwood portion is an asphalt resurfacing job and a roadway change involving the Road Diet design concept.  The vehicle lanes on Shroyer Road will be reduced from four to three.  The City of Oakwood has more information regarding their section of the road.

The project addresses safety concerns identified in a 2016 Shroyer Road Safety Study.  The Road Diet concept will improve the safety performance of Shroyer Road for all transportation modes (e.g., vehicle, pedestrian, bicycle) by reducing all crash types.
