2022 Toledo Department of Transportation Residential Roads Program Announced
Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz announced the 2022 Toledo Department of Transportation Residential Roads Program in a video released on Monday, January 24, 2022.
The 2022 Residential Roads Program goals include: the Residential Resurfacing Program with 118 residential roads and 49.89 lane miles, the Patch and Seal Program with 44 streets and 19.52 lane miles, and the Overlay Program with 35 unimproved streets with 10 lane miles.
Work is expected to begin in April, weather permitting, and it is anticipated to be finished by October 16, 2022.
The Toledo Department of Transportation, who will be handling the 2022 Residential Roads Program, was restructured in order to dedicate resources, and continue to prioritize the maintenance and repair of residential roads.
“Creating the Toledo Department of Transportation is another example of listening to residents and prioritizing what they want from my administration, and the city of Toledo,” Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz said.
The 2022 Residential Roads Program will cost an estimated $22.5 million, and is being completed as a result of voters passing the dedicated roads levy in 2020.
The Residential Resurfacing Program is funded by the dedicated .25% income tax approved by the voters in 2020. The Overlay and Patch & Seal Programs are funded by the gas tax dollars returned to the City of Toledo by the State of Ohio.
“I made a promise to the residents of Toledo to prioritize and invest in Toledo’s residential roads. Last year, we finished the residential roads maintenance on time and under budget. This is what community members asked of us, and this is what they voted for,” Mayor Kapszukiewicz said. “The city will continue to deliver on its promise to make our residential roads accessible and safe for vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians.”

Record Breaking Roads Program
After a record-breaking year of road repairs in 2021, we're setting out to beat that record again in 2022. Thank you Toledo voters for passing the .25% roads levy to make this work possible.
