Public Meetings Planned

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that 2008 is gearing up to be another busy year for road construction with numerous road and bridge closures, particularly in Liberty and West Chester Townships. The Butler County Engineer's Office in conjunction with Liberty and West Chester Townships and the Butler County TID will administer over $50 million worth of projects this year in southeast Butler County alone.

Additionally, the Ohio Department of Transportation will begin a $98 million, three-year project to widen 11 miles of Interstate 75 from Cincinnati Dayton Road to just south of Ohio 122. This will necessitate the closing of four bridge overpasses in Butler County and two in Warren County for several months during 2008.

Public Information Meetings

In an effort to communicate critical road construction information one on one to the traveling public, the Butler County Engineer's Office in cooperation with the West Chester Chamber Alliance, Liberty Township, West Chester Township, the Butler County TID, and the Ohio Department of Transportation, is sponsoring a series of public meetings. These meetings will be a casual opportunity to provide direct construction updates to local property owners, businesses, and motorists so that any concerns can be immediately addressed.

Meetings will be held monthly on the fourth Friday of each month through September. The first meeting is scheduled for March 28. All meetings start at 8:00 a.m. and are being held at the VOA MetroPark Ronald Reagan Lodge in West Chester Township. Attendees can enter the park via VOA Park Drive off of Cox Road. Auto park passes are not required.

The 2008 meeting dates are as follows:

  • Friday, March 28
  • Friday, April 25
  • Friday, May 23
  • Friday, June 27
  • Friday, July 25
