Butler County Engineer
Greg Wilkens reports that Cincinnati Dayton Road in Liberty Township
will open between Bethany Road and Princeton Road late Friday,
September 1, 2006,
depending upon favorable weather. The entire project area will
be open to traffic through the remainder of the Labor Day weekend.
Cincinnati Dayton Road
will then re-close at the Bethany Road intersection beginning
Tuesday, September 5, 2006. Bethany Road will also close at the
intersection. All three legs of the intersection will be completely
closed to traffic. Local access for residents and businesses
as well as emergency vehicles will be maintained from the north,
south, or east side depending upon location, but traffic will
not be permitted through the intersection.
This closure, which
is necessary to allow crews to tear out and replace the old pavement
base, will be in effect for approximately one to two weeks after
which the north and east legs will reopen to local traffic only.
The south leg of Cincinnati Dayton Road will remain closed for
approximately two more weeks, although local access will be permitted.
The intersection is expected to reopen to all traffic by late
September or early October, depending upon favorable weather
conditions; however, construction will continue on the overall
Cincinnati Dayton Road widening project through the end of the
year and into 2007.
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.
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
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.
Motorists are encouraged
