SCROLL TO SEE DETAILED LISTS OF SCHEDULED WORK.
West Chester's annual Infrastructure Program for maintenance includes work on roads, curbs, storm pipe and other related assets.
West Chester Community Services Department works collaboratively with the Butler County Engineer’s Office, Ohio Department of Transportation and Butler County Environmental Services to monitor the condition of the Township’s infrastructure. Making enhancements to support future opportunities for economic development, ensuring safe travel for residents and visitors, and preventing localized flooding are priorities.
By working collaboratively, West Chester achieves the greatest potential cost savings for the taxpayer.
In all cases, infrastructure work is impacted by weather conditions and equipment. West Chester works closely with the Engineer's Office and contractors to limit delays and inconvenience to residents, but some circumstances cannot be avoided.
Storm Pipe Replacement & Repair
In 2018, 12 sections of culvert pipe will be replaced or repaired at a budgeted expense of $300,000. This work begins in early spring and is completed by a private contractor hired by the Township.

Roads - Asphalt Pavement
West Chester will invest about $1.65 million from Township Roads Funds and TIF Funds for asphalt repaving of approximately nine miles of road in 2018. Each year, Township roads are inspected and ranked on condition. These rankings are considered alongside available budget, traffic counts and other factors to set the list of streets to be paved.
Milling of roads in preparation for paving will have impact to motorists. Milled roads are rough to drive on, but every effort is made to follow up with paving as soon as possible. As work is scheduled, the contractor will post temporary "no parking" signs along the street prior to scheduled work. As schedules become available, they will be noted here and communicated by neighborhood through West Chester Township's Nextdoor.com. Residents directly impacted by work also receive notification through U.S. Mail with details of what to expect, but not scheduled date for work.
Aside from limited on-street parking on the day of work, residents may experience some delays. Motorists, however, are permitted to drive on asphalt as soon as the work is complete.
WORK SCHEDULES MAY BE IMPACTED BY WEATHER AND OTHER CONDITIONS
Roads - Black Mat Slurry
Slurry is used to maintain roads in good condition and extend pavement life. It is not a replacement to asphalt pavement. Approximately $150,000 will be spent to slurry a little less than three miles of roadway.
The contractor will post "No Parking" signs along the curb and place "door hanger" notifications the evening before scheduled work. Cars must be removed from the street and residents should move vehicles needed on the day of scheduled work to a neighboring street. No cars, with the exception of emergency response vehicles, will be permitted to drive on the road the day slurry is applied. Contractors will remove barricades when the road is re-opened to traffic.
Scheduled work will also be announced when available through West Chester Township's Nextdoor.com account and on this website. Work schedules, however, can be affected by weather condition, equipment failure and other issues beyond the control of West Chester Township and the contractor. West Chester does its best to limit inconvenience to residents. If you have concerns regarding the schedule, please call 777-8765.
Slurry will leave a gravel-like residue. Several weeks after the material has cured, the Township street sweeper will be through to clear this debris. Residents are free to use a broom to clear the material prior to the sweeper.
ROADS TO BE ANNOUNCED AFTER CONTRACT APPROVED
Curb Replacement & Repair
Repair and replacement of curbs generally coincides with new pavement and slurry seal coat applications. Curb work will take place before the road is addressed, and affected residents will receive notifications in the U.S. Mail.
