Highlights

Miamisburg company would move 100 current jobs, add 40 from Virginia.

An access road project that’s part of a multi-million deal to bring 140 jobs to the Austin interchange area as part of a Miamisburg’s company new North American headquarters is estimated to cost $4.7 million, city records show.

The project — estimated to cost $3.4 million in road work and $1.3 million in stormwater improvements — is seen as a key infrastructure upgrade by Miamisburg officials who say it will help fuel development along Byers Road near Interstate 75.

The city agreed to finance the road as a part of a deal expected to top $18 million in private and public investment to bring 100 Miamisburg jobs closer to I-75 as United Grinding North America builds its continental headquarters on about 15 acres.

The additional 40 jobs - which city officials project with an average annual salary of $90,000 - would come from Virginia as the company consolidates operations at a $13 million, 100,000-square-foot facility it is building north of the interchange.

The project that would help United Grinding relocate from its Earl Avenue site goes before Miamisburg City Council on Tuesdaynight.

The company’s move and the road project “will help tremendously with interest and drive development” in the Byers-Austin corridor, Miamisburg Development Director Chris Fine has said.

“The $4.7M includes 2-lane roadway construction, a raised, center grass median, standard city sidewalk, curb and gutter, and a new 72-inch storm sewer piping,” according to a memo from City Engineer Bob Stanley.

“Utility relocations and installation of two new concrete box storm drainage structures are included in the work.

Road construction plans are complete and – if council approves it as expected – a contract award is expected in April with construction starting this spring and completed by the end of October, according to Stanley.

The access road off Byers Road will be about 1,500 feet north of Austin Boulevard.
