Road Closing October 1
Liberty / Fairfield Township line

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that Liberty Fairfield Road is slated for an upgrade between Hamilton Mason Road and Princeton Road starting October 1. The project will widen the existing lanes from ten to twelve feet, add two-foot paved shoulders plus an additional two-foot earth berm, and reconstruct driveways and drainage to accommodate the pavement widening. Additionally, a small bridge built in 1940 will be replaced with a new pre-cast concrete arch structure. The 20-foot span crosses a branch of the Mill Creek.

A construction contract for the project was awarded to Barrett Paving Materials, Inc. of Cincinnati which submitted a low bid of $760,552. Funding will consist of State OPWC money and local BCEO matching funds.

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

Liberty Fairfield Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

Liberty Fairfield Road will close to thru traffic between Logsdon's Woods Drive and Princeton Road beginning Monday, October 1, 2012. While local access will be permitted, the road will be closed to all motorists at the point of the bridge replacement, located between Maple Crest Drive and Weathered Oaks Lane / Stone Creek Drive.

During this closure, all thru traffic will be detoured but local access will be maintained for residents, businesses, school buses, and emergency vehicles; however, local access will be limited to either the north or south side of the bridge project, depending upon one's location.

The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of December 3, 2012.

Detour: Northbound Liberty Fairfield Road traffic will detour east on Hamilton Mason Road, north on Ohio 747, and west on Princeton Road. Southbound 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.
