CenterPoint Gas Line Improvements
CenterPoint (formerly Vectren) continues replacing underground gas distribution pipes and home service lines in Oakwood neighborhoods. The CenterPoint project maps identify work programmed for 2023. In all work areas, CenterPoint is installing new polyethylene pipes in place of old steel and cast iron pipes and is moving indoor gas meters to outside wall locations. This is the continuation of a multi-year CenterPoint infrastructure replacement project in Oakwood scheduled to be completed in 2023. Oakwood residents personally affected by the work will receive detailed information from CenterPoint.

Annual Sidewalk, Curb and Driveway Apron Repair Project
The 2023 Sidewalk, Curb and Driveway Apron Repair Project will take place in the southwest quadrant of the City, including all areas of Oakwood west of Far Hills Avenue and south of Park Road. The purpose of the project is to maintain the concrete structures located within the City rights-of-way in a good, safe condition. City staff will inspect the areas and mark sections of concrete requiring repairs. Residents affected by the work will receive personal notification regarding their responsibilities. Please call Public Works Foreman David Shuey at (937) 298-0777 if you have any questions.
