ROSS TOWNSHIP INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENT TO BEGIN
Public-Private Partnership Project

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that improvements to the intersection at Ohio 128 and Krause Lane are slated to begin next week. Plans call for the Ross Township intersection to be realigned so that Krause Lane and Rossgate Court line up with each other at Ohio 128.

"This project is a fine example of public-private partnering," said Wilkens. "Several local businesses in the area recognized the need to make this intersection safer and they, along with the Ross Township Trustees, approached us about providing design plans. In a spirit of cooperation, we donated the engineering and they will handle construction. At a time when roadbuilding funds are extremely tight, this is a good arrangement for the County. It benefits the taxpayers, helps the local businesses, and results in a safer intersection for motorists."

Watson Gravel, John R. Jurgensen Company, and Martin Marietta Aggregates are splitting the $128,000 construction cost. John R. Jurgensen Company will act as the contractor on the job which will take approximately two weeks to complete. All roads will remain open during construction.
