Construction Updates: Week of July 15, 2024

Please note that construction schedules are subject to change due to weather, site issues, etc. Reference this MAP to view the impacted construction areas for next week. Unsure about which is your area? Visit the Blueprint- map and type in your address to find out!

Sump pump installations are offered for a limited time only! We have a few spots left on our list! If you are interested, contact us ASAP and we’ll schedule your no-obligation assessment to see if a sump pump is right for you!

General Updates

If you have a basement backup (sewer water coming up from your floor drain), please report this to the City by calling 614-645-7102. Please note that crews are working diligently to investigate issues throughout the city, and so we may not be able to respond immediately. We appreciate your patience and understanding.


Sunrise-Glenn Construction Update – July 15-26, 2024

Reference this MAP to view the impacted construction areas.

Area 1:  7/15 – Install water main lowering on King Avenue at Glenn Avenue

Area 2:  7/16 – Install water main lowering on W. 7th Avenue between North Star and Broadview

Area 3:  7/17-7/19 – Continue water main install on Fairview between W. 5th and W. 3rd

Area 4:  7/22-7/26 – Install Storm Sewer on Elmwood Avenue between W. 5th and King.

Area 5: 7/22-7/26 – Waterline shuts for lowerings.


Note: If there is any impact on water service, affected individuals will receive advance notice and relevant information directly. To minimize the impact of daytime water service loss, some work may be conducted at night. Limited Lane/Street Closures are possible. Pavement replacement will be performed quickly after pipe has been installed, as close to every other day as feasible but road plates will be used until pavement replacement is performed.

Design Stage


Current Projects

Fifth X Northwest is divided into two separate project areas. Both project areas are in the Grandview Heights neighborhood sitting just north of W 3rd Ave.

Sunrise / Glenn: The majority of the Sunrise/Glenn project area is located between W 3rd Ave and King Ave. The western boundary is Northwest Blvd and the eastern boundary is Wyandotte Rd.  A small section of the project area goes as far north as Presidential Dr. 

Edgehill / Meadow: The majority of the Edgehill/Meadow project area is located between W 3rd Ave and King Ave. The eastern boundary is Northwest Blvd and the wester boundary is Olentangy River Rd.

5th x Northwest Project Schedule

Phase 1

Surveying: 2016

Surveyors are in the neighborhood to document water flow patterns, topography, existing utilities, and other residential infrastructure, such as downspouts.

Phase 2

Green Infrastructure Design: 2018-2023

The engineering team identifies the types and locations of green infrastructure that will meet the needs of the neighborhood. During the design phase, we seek resident feedback through surveys, public meetings, and field visits.

Phase 3

Shovels in the Ground: 2024

Construction of green infrastructure involves work in the public right-of-way and street. All neighborhood residents will be notified of anticipated impacts, and Blueprint will send out weekly construction updates to keep everyone informed of the schedule and activities.

Green Infrastructure Construction: 2024

Rain gardens and porous pavement sites are installed. During this time other city infrastructure work may occur, such as waterline upgrades or sidewalk installations.

Lateral Lining and Roofwater Redirection: 2025

Individual homes are assessed for lateral lining and roofwater redirection. These home improvements prevent stormwater from entering the sanitary sewer lines by getting that water away from your home and out to the street, so it can drain to the storm sewer system
