[ARCHIVED] Service Department is Working Hard for Clayton Residents


The biggest project the Service Department has undertaken is the three-year road resurfacing and curb replacement project. 2018 is year three of the project, which will start in April and continue through September. The concrete and catch basin replacement will begin in April and be completed in July, followed by the resurfacing portion of the project which will be completed in September. 40-roads are involved with this year’s program, 28 of those roads in the Seville plat from Taywood to Union and Valleybrook to Old Salem Roads. The other 12-roads are in the Savina Hills neighborhood.  The total cost of the concrete project is estimated at $1.8 million and the paving at $1.2 million.  If you have any questions regarding specifics of this project, please contact Service Director, Randy Sanders at (937) 836-3500.

In addition to the resurfacing project, over the past three years the Service Department has been busy with additional projects improving the Clayton community.   These projects include:
105-ADA ramps have been installed, 55 in 2017 within the Seville plat. The majority of all the ramps have been paid for through local grants including a CDBG Grant from Montgomery County.  Clayton will be applying for another grant in 2018, which if awarded, should complete all the needed ADA ramp installations within the City’s boundaries.
Secured a $190,438 grant from MVRPC to resurface a 2.25-mile stretch of Hoke Rd. in 2019.

Clayton’s response to inclement weather events has greatly improved by making several adjustments to procedures:
The first addition was including an agricultural bi-product to the salt brine (salt water) used by Clayton. The City makes the salt brine, at a cost of around .06 cents a gallon. When mixed with the beet product, the melting process on snow and ice is faster than just applying salt to the roads.  This mixture also reduces the bounce and scatter of the material, saving salt and providing a better service and saving resources for residents.

The Service Department response time to poor weather has greatly improved by taking advantage of technological advances in our region.  Clayton now uses the Ohio Department of Transportation’s RWIS (Road Weather Information System), which provides information to Clayton about local traffic speeds, road temperatures, sub-surface temps, and precipitation falling. Using these and other technologies allows Clayton to respond to poor weather faster than we ever have in the past.  These measures allow Clayton to be proactive in poor weather conditions instead of reactive.
