Road improvements coming to Liberty

Bad roads

LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WYTV) – Driving on Tibbetts Wick Road between Logan Way and Warner Road is a challenge.

“Oh, it is terrible. It looks like Afghanistan. I mean, we put a lot of money in it last year just to make it decent and it’s still bad,” Liberty Township Administrator Pat Ungaro said.

Several motorists said the road is so bad, they avoid it all together.

Ungaro said that section of Tibbetts Wick Road is set to be fixed this summer.

Ungaro says Mansell Drive is also up for resurfacing. The projects are expensive though, costing about $575,000 to handle both.

The township is using money from a road levy that generates $260,000 a year and an additional $225,000 from a grant to pay the hefty bill.

“When it is done, I think they will be happy. Then we are going to deal with other roads and other people,” Ungaro said.

He expects the Tibbetts Wick project to go up for bid next month, which will give it an August starting date.

And even though these two roads will be done this summer, Ungaro said he knows there are many roads that need repaired.

“There is at least another dozen streets that are just as bad, but we had to do one a year because of the cost and it’s going to take a long time,” Ungaro said.
