Please remember, Blueprint Columbus is funded by the City of Columbus’ Department of Public Utilities. There is no direct cost for any of our services to the residents. We have received reports there are private contractors in the area soliciting for similar work. If you are solicited about any work related to sump pumps, lateral lining, or downspout redirection, contact our Outreach Team to confirm you are in a Blueprint Neighborhood and will be receiving FREE services.

  • From Department of Public Service: Glencoe Rd. Resurfacing Update
    • Glencoe Rd. paving update:  DPS is working with their contractor to resolve paving delays on Glencoe Rd.  They plan to install the base asphalt as soon as possible, weather permitting.  They are planning on this Sunday when temperatures are up around 50 degrees and the road has had a chance to dry out from this week’s rain.
    • Then the final course of asphalt will be placed on the next day that we have favorable temperatures. DPS must consider ground temperatures, not just air temperatures, and although next week may be questionable, the week after looks more promising. DPS continues to encourage the contractor to get this resurfacing completed as a priority.
  • From Department of Public Service: Blenheim Road resurfacing Update
    • The City of Columbus makes critical investments in street resurfacing projects like Blenheim to improve the quality of our roadways and infrastructure that residents depend on every day. Relocation of the main gas line on Blenheim by Columbia Gas must be completed before the city rebuilds and paves the street so the utility construction doesn’t tear up a newly resurfaced street. Delays in Columbia Gas completing the main gas line relocation have pushed the Blenheim resurfacing project to next spring. Columbia Gas will be working on the relocation this fall and winter.
    • For questions on this work, please contact 311 (645-3111)

General Notices

  • Several streets are slated for repaving in conjunction with Department of Public Service. Repaving schedules are currently being finalized with the contractor in most areas. When Blueprint receives schedule information from the Department of Public Service, we will also include that information in these notices.
  • The rain gardens are designed to drain in 48 hours or less. Some standing water within the garden after a rain event is normal. However, if the rain gardens are overflowing or have standing water for more than 2 days, please report that to blueprint@columbus.gov or 311.
  • Just like a normal storm drain, the rain gardens can’t do their job if leaves/debris are piling up and blocking water from entering the inlet. Our crews will clear these inlets during regular maintenance, but if you see leaves piling up and blocking the rain garden inlets, feel free to push them aside to allow rainwater to enter. And, as always, remember to keep leaves and yard waste out of the streets as much as possible.
