Updates on the Paving Project

In November 2016, the citizens of Ashland voted on and passed an income tax increase of .25 percent to generate additional funding to repave streets in the city. Updates regarding that project will be posted here as they become available.

Please note that the plans are contingent upon the weather and other factors. The contractor for the project is committed to doing a great job for the city and will make every effort to complete the job as efficiently as possible.

In addition to the City of Ashland paving project, some of the main routes through Ashland are maintained by the Ohio Department of Transportation. Click on the following link to see the ODOT plan for Statewide Transportation Improvement Program for Ashland from 2018 to 2021.

Thank you for your patience as the crews work on the paving. The inconveniences will soon result in a more pleasant ride around the city for all of us!
