CINCINNATI -- Crews begin a months-long project of rehabbing and preserving more than 200 of the city’s roads Monday. 

The road work is part of the city’s preventative maintenance program, which aims to better preserve the streets, Don Gindling with the city’s transportation and engineering department said. 

“We pick the streets that are in better condition and try to preserve them … try to get five to seven years out of the treatment, keep the streets lasting longer,” Gindling said. 

That means crews will sweep, seal and repair minor potholes on 90 miles of 208 city streets by October. 

People living on streets that have to be worked on will receive door hangers 48 hours before service starts.

Crews will work from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Monday to Saturday. Residents won’t be able to park in the street while crews work, but most streets will be reopened in a day.
