SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Springfield Township is gearing up for a big construction season, but the good news is no roads will be shut down completely.

The upcoming project more than doubles the size of last year's construction, covering 3.2 miles of roadways. The majority of the work will be on Kieswetter Road.

"There's some businesses there that have heavy equipment that travel that roadway," explained Mike Hampton, the director of public services. "So we're also improving the drainage for Kieswetter."

Other areas will see resurfacing and curb improvements. Hampton says the plan is to continue to improve township roads for years to come.

"I've got a 5-year plan now, and I'm working on a 10-year plan, so we can continue to not fall behind and end up where some of our roads are in a horrible condition," he said.

He also said the township is putting a lot of their budget into improving the roadways so the residents feel like they're getting the most for their money.

Residents will receive information about the upcoming project before it begins in mid-August.

Both phases of the $1.4 million project will be completed by November.
