Toledo Department of Transportation Begins Work on the 2023 Residential Road Program
Mayor Kapszukiewicz indicated the start of the 2023 Residential Road Program by waiving a green flag at Cresthaven Lane and Larchwood Lane with members of the Department of Transportation.
The 2023 Residential Road Program includes the Residential Resurfacing Program with 105 residential streets and 44.67 lane miles, the Patch and Seal Program with 37 streets and 12.84 lane miles, and the Overlay Program with 26 unimproved streets and 8.54 lane miles.
Weather permitting, the work will begin in March and it is anticipated to be completed by October 2023.
The 2023 Residential Roads Program is funded by the dedicated ¼% income tax approved by voters in 2020.
Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz emphasized the impact of the ¼ % tax. “Whether you are talking about the number of roads or total lanes miles, we are talking about a 15 to 20-fold increase every year since the levy passed in 2020. We are going to continue tackling a number of roads with the support of this levy so Toledo will be a safer, and more attractive place to live, work, and do business.”
The Patch and Seal Program is funded by the gas tax dollars returned to the City of Toledo by the state of Ohio.
The 2023 Residential Roads Program costs 27.5 million and is being completed as a result of the voters passing the dedicated roads levy in 2020.
