TWO INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS SLATED FOR JUNE

County Engineer Greg Wilkens announces that construction to upgrade two Butler County intersections will begin next month. Crews will start work June 1 at the intersection of Eaton Road and Taylor School Road on the Wayne / St. Clair Township line, although some preliminary work may begin sooner. The project is designed to improve turning radii at the intersection. This will provide safer and easier turning movements for larger vehicles such as school buses, according to Wilkens. Work is expected to be completed in approximately one to two weeks and no road closures are expected.

Crews will then move to Cincinnati Dayton Road at Kyles Station Road where plans call for improving the sight distance, widening the turning radii, and raising the roadway profile on the west side of the intersection to improve the approach to Cincinnati Dayton. This will require the closure of Kyles Station Road on the intersection's west side for approximately two to three weeks. A culvert installation across Cincinnati Dayton Road will necessitate one overnight closure of the intersection's south leg between 7:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. Exact closing dates will be announced and posted on the BCEO web site when the information becomes available. Construction at the Liberty Township intersection is expected to take approximately two to three weeks, weather permitting.

The construction contract for both projects was awarded to the John R. Jurgensen Company which submitted a low bid of $254,075. Funding will consist of 100 percent Butler County money.

Update - June 10, 2002: The Cincinnati Dayton Road at Kyles Station Road project has been postponed until further notice due to issues involving two 24-inch gas transmission lines.
