For Immediate Release

Liberty Township

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 Project

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.

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.

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.
