TYLERSVILLE ROAD IMPROVEMENT TO START THIS WEEK
Chesterwood Boulevard to Butler Warren Road

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that roadway improvements will begin this week on Tylersville Road in West Chester Township. The project involves adding a center turn lane from Chesterwood Boulevard to Butler Warren Road, thus expanding the road from its current four-lane configuration to five -- two eastbound and two westbound lanes with a center turn lane.

The center turn lane addition will allow for safer left turn movements by creating a storage area for left turning traffic. It will also create a safety zone of separation between opposing lanes of traffic on this heavily traveled stretch of Tylersville Road.

Crews will widen the roadway by adding pavement along the north edge with final striping to reflect the new five-lane configuration. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained both eastbound and westbound throughout most of the project's duration; however, motorists may encounter occasional single lane closures during off peak hours. There may also be some minor lane shifts during final paving and striping. Construction is slated for completion by the end of November, weather permitting.

A contract for the project was awarded to the John R. Jurgensen Company of Cincinnati which submitted a low bid of $543,917. The BCEO leveraged State OPWC funds to pay for 87 percent of the construction cost. The remaining local match will come from local BCEO funds.
