Road Department 2013

Washington Township was awarded An Ohio Public Works Commission Grant.

In July of 2013 Washington Township was awarded a grant for Lexview allotment of $84,000.00 for Drainage tile updates, tar and chip with a Micro Seal. Total projected cost for Lexview allotment is $210,000.00. Township employees have been working on this project with an expected completion in the spring of 2014.

Washington Township is one of the last Townships in the county to operate with out a road levy. By going after grants and using new technologies in paving, we are trying to prolong the need for new funds. The Township is placing an application for an Ohio Public Works Commission Grant 2014 at a total projected cost of $500,000.00. This includes a box culvert replacement on Vanderbilt Rd  along with Tar and chip on most roads west of SR. 13, and  guardrail updates.  Outside of grants this year,  Straub Rd. between US 42 and Rippling brook Dr. was resurfaced. Tile replacements have taken place though out the Township on many roads.
