The 2018 road construction season is another busy one for Upper Arlington, as our Engineering Division continues to take steps to reduce the backlog of necessary work. This year's work represents year five 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 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 half a percent, bringing UA's rate to 2.5%, with all funds generated by the increase dedicated to meeting our capital needs.
*Note: The 10-Year Capital Improvement Program is updated every two years, with two new "Years 9 and 10" added as each "Year 1 and 2" are completed. As part of this update, some projects change project year, based on a reassessment of priorities/conditions. This typically does not affect projects identified for "Years 1-3" but can result in adjustments for "Years 4-10."
