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.
  • Thank you for contacting us about the status of the Blenheim Road resurfacing project from High Street to Indianola Avenue. 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.
  • Inlet protections for storm sewer inlets will remain until construction has ended and disturbed sites are stabilized. Please do not tamper with or remove them, they are required construction site controls to keep sediment and debris from the construction activities out of the storm sewer. Newly constructed rain garden inlets are also initially blocked with straw waddles to allow the plants to get established and stabilized before becoming fully functional. All inlet protections will be removed by the contractor when allowed.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Glencoe Rd. Resurfacing Update:  Glencoe Rd. is part of the Dept of Public Service’ 2019 resurfacing list.  Columbia Gas has gas line work that must be completed as well.  Both are collaborating to complete this work.  AFTER Columbia Gas performs their gas line work, DPS will proceed with street stabilization and resurfacing work, including curb.  Timeline for resurfacing work is anticipated for mid-October. As more detailed schedules become available, we will provide that information in these updates.
