STILLWELL BECKETT ROADWAY AND INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENT BEGINS
ROADS TO CLOSE APRIL 10
Reily Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that construction is slated to begin this month on a major safety improvement to Stillwell Beckett Road at Woods Station Road. The project will straighten Stillwell Beckett to eliminate three sharp curves at and approaching the intersection with Woods Station and North Pierson Roads. As part of the project, Woods Station will be shifted slightly to conform with the newly realigned Stillwell Beckett, which will also see the addition of a left turn lane. The upgraded configuration will be much safer since the hazardous curves will be straightened and the intersection will be modified into a more traditional "T" type intersection.

The construction contract for the project was awarded to W.G. Stang, LLC of Hamilton which submitted a low bid of $575,508. State OPWC funds will be utilized by the Butler County Engineer's Office to help pay for 78 percent of the project's cost. The remaining local match amount consists of BCEO funds.

Crews will begin work April 10 at which time it will be necessary to close both Stillwell Beckett and Woods Station Roads. Weather permitting, the project should be completed by mid-June, according to Wilkens.

Road Closing Info

Stillwell Beckett Road in Reily Township will close 0.2 mile southeast of North Law Road and 0.4 mile northwest of Decamp Road beginning Monday, April 10, 2006 in conjunction with the above mentioned project. The entire length of Woods Station Road will also close. While each road will be closed to through traffic, local access will be maintained for residents and emergency vehicles via Stillwell Beckett. Woods Station however will be completely closed and inaccesible to all traffic. This means that access to North Pierson Road will be available only from the Stillwell Beckett side.

All roads are tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of June 19, 2006.

Detour: Southeastbound Stillwell Beckett Road traffic will detour south on Ohio 732, southeast on Reily Millville Road, and north on U.S. 27. Northwestbound traffic will reverse this route. Woods Station Road traffic should use the same detour.
