Current and Upcoming Projects
The Engineering Department has many construction projects throughout the City of Huber Heights. Please check for updates on the latest projects. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Engineering Department at 937-237-5810.
The Huber Heights Engineering Division has begun another year of the City's annual Sidewalk Repair and Replacement Program. The Sidewalk Program begins each year when the Engineering Division selects an area of the city to perform the work.
- A City Inspector will make an initial inspection and will place markings on the sidewalk.
- The City Engineer will then make a final determination as to what work needs to be accomplished.
- The citizens in the selected area will then be sent a letter describing the program and what steps are to be taken to get the repairs completed. There are two choices presented, the first option for getting the work completed is for the homeowner to hire a private contractor to make the repairs to the lot.
- The City will provide a list of contractors that are currently bonded with the City. Once a contractor is chosen, they must apply for a permit prior to the work getting started.
- During the construction, City inspections must be made before and after any concrete is put in place. All work for this option should be completed by December 31st. If the work does not get completed, the City will make the repairs with the program the following spring.
- The second option is to do nothing, wait until the spring, and allow the City to include your property in the City's bidding process and have the City's contractor perform the work on your behalf.
- The City will provide an estimated amount for the construction work.
- After the City hires a contractor and the work is completed, you will receive a bill in the summer for the actual amount of the work completed which includes a 10% administrative fee (2% paid by the City).
- You may choose to pay the bill by the specified date or have the bill assessed to your property taxes and have the payments spread out over a 5 year period.
- All bills placed on the property records will incur additional charges of interest and county collection fees for the entire 5 years.

The Street Program for Huber Heights consists of paving streets and replacing deteriorated curb. Curb replacement will be performed on the streets that are scheduled to be paved this year and on a few streets that have pavement that is still in good condintion. The City bid out the curb repairs in March. The chosen contractor will begin the curb replacement around May or June and will be complete around September. The paving of the selected roads (see map) will begin around October and be completed in November.
The water main for this project will be replaced on several different streets in the Huber Heights area that have had numerous water main breaks over the last few years. The locations of the replacements include portions of Tomberg, Hubbard, Chesham, Sandbury, Tewkesbury, Hartwick, Alter, and Longford. (Map Attached). The water main on Tomberg has been complete.
The design of the water main replacement was completed at the end of April, 2023. We went out to bid in June to get a contractor to install the pipe. Construction began in October on Tomberg. We are using two contractors to do the work and it should take approximately 12 months months to complete (weather dependent). The new pipe will be installed by trenching in the street and the work will include new fire hydrants and water valves. The old water main will be abandoned.

This project is for the construction of a new road located at the old Marian Meadows Shopping Center. The road will extend west from Miami Valley Way to a small roundabout and then loop back south to Brandt Pike. The road is needed for the new development and access to the new Authentix apartment complex and the new City Governance building. The construction will start in March and be completed in July.
The City is currently continuing the widening on Old Troy Pike (northbound) from the old Huber Court through the Merily Way/Waynetowne Boulevard intersection to the eastbound ramp onto I-70. A portion of Merily Way will also be widened in front of Arby’s and McDonalds to the Car Wash. The widening will help traffic by providing more storage and better access to the new development and to all of the existing restaurants along the widening route. Also, a new mast arm traffic signal will be installed at the intersection. This project will not be completed around July.
In the next few months, the walking paths inside Tom Cloud Park will be repaired and repaved.
The City will soon begin another year of lining sanitary sewer pipe. The project involves lining portions of old clay sanitary sewer in the southern portion of the city that have been televised by Tri-Cities Authority camera crew and have been rated the worst for cracks, misaligned joints, and partially collapsed pipe.
This project began last month and will include 6,904 L. F. of pipe to be lined. This process has been used in the City seven times in the past and has worked well to prolong the life of the sewer. This project will begin in the next few months and is expected to last approximately 2 to 3 months.
The City of Huber Heights is in the process of installing a new water main extension on Bellefontaine Road from just south of Belle Plain Drive going north to CenterPoint 70 Drive (north of I-70). This water main will be used to make a new connection to the City’s water system in CenterPoint 70. Currently, the water at CenterPoint 70 is being supplied by Clark County. The City has decided to terminate a service agreement with Clark County that has been in effect for many years. Once the new water main is installed, a connection will be made to the existing piping and water tower. The existing water piping that leaves CenterPoint 70 (going to Clark County) will be cut and capped off with new fire hydrants. We will be installing approximately 7,900 feet of 16” water main. This new water main will also provide the opportunity for future extensions on Taylorsville Road and other areas for possible development to the east side of the City. The City will be using a federal grant from ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act) to help fund this project. The pipe installation is completed. The final activation will occur after the East Sanitary Sewer Extension Project is completed.
The City of Huber Heights is in the process of installing a new sanitary sewer extension on the east side of the City near State Route 4. The installation begins at the Fairborn Wastewater Treatment Plant, crosses State Route 4 then runs north along the west side of Route 4 to New Carlisle Pike, then continues north crossing I-70. A sanitary force main will then be installed going north to CenterPoint 70 Boulevard and then it ends at a new pump station on the east side of State Route 235/4. This sanitary sewer will be used to make a new connection to the City’s sanitary system in CenterPoint 70. Currently, the sewage from the sanitary sewers at CenterPoint 70 is being sent to Clark County for treatment. The City has decided to terminate a service agreement with Clark County that has been in effect for many years. Once the new sanitary sewer is installed, a connection will be made to the existing sanitary piping. The existing sanitary piping that leaves CenterPoint 70 (going to Clark County) will be cut and capped off. We will be installing approximately 9,000 feet of 12” and 15” sanitary sewer along with 2 new pump stations. This new sanitary sewer will also provide for development opportunities on the east side of the City when future extensions of sanitary sewer are installed along Chambersburg Road.
