The 2020 road construction season is another busy one for Upper Arlington, representing year seven of the City’s first 10-year Capital Improvement Program planning process, designed to bring the City’s inventory of outstanding infrastructure maintenance needs to an acceptable standard, and setting the stage for staying current with needs into the future. It was made possible by Upper Arlington voter support of an increase in the income tax rate of .5% in 2014—bringing UA’s rate to 2.5%—with all funds generated by the increase dedicated to meeting our capital needs.
The 10-Year Capital Improvement Program is updated every year, with the new “Year 10” added as each “Year 1” is completed. As part of this update, some projects change project year, based on a reassessment of priorities and conditions at the time of a reassessment process. This typically does not affect projects identified for “Years 1-3” but can result in adjustments for “Years 4-10.”

The Environmental Protection Agency required and has approved a Sanitary Sewer Evaluation Survey to identify the most problematic areas in the City for rainwater getting into the sanitary sewer pipes. Following this evaluation, the City developed a 12-year remediation plan called the Sustainable Sewer Solutions Program, which began in 2017. These projects may include renovation, installation of a liner, cleaning or replacement of main sewer lines, sanitary laterals and manholes, and typically require a detour of the sanitary waste using the structure.

The Sidewalk Maintenance Program provides for periodic inspections of existing sidewalks to determine if repairs or replacement work is necessary to keep the network in good working order. The maintenance and repair for sidewalks is the responsibility of the adjacent property owner. The City will make repairs when damage has been caused by the roots of City-owned trees in the public right-of-way, defects caused by utility manholes or valves, and any curb ramps.
