Cincinnati enters year two of $60 million preventative road maintenance plan

CINCINNATI — The city is hoping to work on roughly 300 miles of road this year, part of a six-year street rehabilitation program that began in 2016. It’s all part of a $60 million capital acceleration program going through 2021, meant — for the first time — to include preventative maintenance on roads still rated in good condition. The 300 lane-miles of improvements slated for this year represent about 10 percent of the city’s roughly 2,900 miles of cumulative traffic lanes. Almost half of that runs through residential zones, according to Department of Transportation and Engineering officials.
