For Immediate Release

Liberty Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that Cincinnati Dayton Road in Liberty Township will open between Princeton Road and Millikin Road on Friday, June 30, 2006. This is a month ahead of schedule thanks to a diligent effort by the contractor and the BCEO Construction Department, according to Wilkens. "This will allow us to proceed with the next phase of the project even sooner than anticipated," he noted. "At this rate, and if the weather cooperates, we should be able to get most of the closure behind us before we get into the upcoming school year."

The Butler County Engineer's Office is constructing major safety improvements to the narrow, heavily-traveled portion of Cincinnati Dayton Road between Liberty One Drive and Millikin Road -- an approximate two-mile stretch. The road will be widened to three lanes with the addition of a center turn lane, several small hills will be cut down, intersections will be improved, traffic signals upgraded, and curb and gutter will be added through the Bethany area. Additional work will include the replacement of a bridge and several culverts, the installation of a new storm sewer system, and almost $1 million in water line reconstruction.

The $4.2 million dollar construction project is slated for completion in the summer of 2007.

Road Closing Info

The Cincinnati Dayton Road closing will shift to the south as crews move to the next major phase. The road will open between Princeton Road and Millikin Road on June 30, 2006. The entire project area will be open to through traffic during the 4th of July holiday period.

Cincinnati Dayton Road will then close on Wednesday, July 5, 2006 south of Princeton Road and north of Bethany Road. The road will be closed to through traffic but local access will be maintained for all residents and businesses as well as emergency vehicles.

This closure is necessary for a bridge replacement in conjunction with the overall road improvement. Local motorists requiring access to addresses 6415 and north will need to enter from the Princeton Road side. Motorists accessing addresses 6429 and south will enter from the Bethany Road side during this closure.

This section of Cincinnati Dayton Road is tentatively scheduled to reopen by August 18, 2006, weather permitting. Additional closures are possible with this project. The BCEO will issue further news releases and postings on our web site to announce these closures should they occur.

Detour: Northbound Cincinnati Dayton Road traffic will detour west and north on Yankee Road and east on Princeton Road. Southbound traffic will reverse this route.

Motorists are encouraged to check the Road Closings page here on the BCEO web site as the best source for possible date and status changes concerning this and any future closures.
