RELOCATED KYLES STATION ROAD TO OPEN
New, Safer Intersection at Ohio 4

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that a newly relocated section of Kyles Station Road in Liberty Township is set to open on Friday. Under construction since early May, the new road will intersect with Ohio 4 across from Elk Run Drive, approximately half a mile from its former location.

"The project was designed to create a safer intersection that will be fully signalized," said Wilkens. "Not only will the new intersection be much safer for motorists turning to and from Kyles Station Road, but the spacing between this and adjacent signals on Route 4 will facilitate smoother traffic flow."

The $1.1 million project was a joint effort involving the BCEO, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), and private interests. ODOT funded the signals while the BCEO was responsible for pavement and pavement markings. Right-of-way and other aspects of the project were donated by private development.

Traffic Advisory

New signals at the Ohio 4 and newly relocated Kyles Station Road intersection are currently on flash mode. These signals will become fully operational in stop-and-go mode beginning this Friday, June 15, when the new section of Kyles Station opens. Motorists are urged to approach the intersection with caution during this transitional phase.

Old Kyles Station Road

The old section of Kyles Station Road will be renamed Old Kyles Station Road and access will be limited at Ohio 4 -- the north leg will be cul-de-sacked and only northbound Ohio 4 traffic will be permitted to turn eastbound onto Old Kyles Station. Motorists will not be able to turn onto Ohio 4 from this point. Please click here for an aerial overview depicting the project.
