This is a collaborative project between the City of Loveland, Clermont County, and the Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD). There are many parts of this $2.1-million project:

  • Clermont County is replacing the bridge on East Loveland Avenue over Bares Run, adjacent to 250 E. Loveland Ave. 
  • MSD will replace and upsize the sanitary sewer from approximately 220 to 362 E. Loveland Ave.
  • The city is receiving $722,400 in state grant funding to install sidewalks on both sides of the road between 227 to 356 E. Loveland Ave.; relocate water main around the future bridge wingwalls; make storm sewer system improvements; and repave a portion of the roadway.
