Road Closing April 16
Liberty Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that improvements are set to get under way on a portion of Millikin Road in Liberty Township. Crews will modify the vertical alignment by cutting down a knob between the north and south legs of LeSourdsville West Chester Road, improving sight distance for motorists on Millikin and at each of the intersections.

A construction contract for the project was awarded to Rack & Ballauer Excavating Company located in the Ross / Crosby Township area which submitted a low bid of $187,181. Funding will consist of 100 percent local BCEO money.

All work is scheduled for completion by early June 2012, weather permitting.

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

Millikin Road will close between the north and south legs of LeSourdsville West Chester Road for a roadway improvement beginning Monday, April 16, 2012. The intersections themselves will remain open. Only the portion of Millikin between the two intersections will be closed. The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of June 4, 2012.

During this closure, local access to the closed portion of Millikin Road will be maintained for residents living within this section only. All other motorists and thru traffic will be required to use the posted detour.

Detour: Eastbound Millikin Road traffic will detour west on Millikin, south on Ohio 747, east on Princeton Road, north on Yankee Road, to west on Millikin. Westbound traffic will reverse this route.

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 closure.
