Construction

All water and sewer line installation including tie-ins and service connections have been completed on Oberlin Road. Final restoration is underway with paving operations scheduled for the week of December 13th, weather permitting. The Oberlin Road closure from Fairview Road to Wade Avenue is planned to be reopened on Wednesday, December 22nd. 

Detours remain in place at this time and motorists approaching these areas should expect delays and are advised to avoid these areas if possible. Please be aware of all posted traffic signs, detours, traffic cones, and work crews.

To complete the project, a water valve and vault installation located near Annapolis Drive and Wade Avenue will begin work January 3, 2022. This planned work will require closure of the Wade Avenue westbound ramp off Oberlin road for approximately 3 weeks. Detours will be in place to direct traffic.  

Thank you for your patience during these infrastructure improvements.
