Road Closing May 6
Fairfield Township

Fixing a curve on Tylersville Road will be the focus of a project that gets under way starting May 6, according to Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens. An 1,800-foot stretch of road between Seward Road and the West Chester / Fairfield Township line will be improved to make it safer for motorists.

The project consists of easing the sharpness of the curve, widening the existing lanes, adding full shoulders, and improving the slope of the road. Additionally, two culverts will be replaced and the slopes off the south side of the road will be graded to be less steep.

A construction contract has been awarded to the Rack & Ballauer Excavating Company located in the Ross / Crosby Township area which submitted a low bid of $369,393. Funding will consist of 100 percent local BCEO money.

All work is scheduled for completion by mid-June, weather permitting.

Tylersville Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

Tylersville Road will close from approximately 800 feet east of Seward Road to 0.4 mile west of Smith Road / Tyler's Reserve Drive for the roadway improvement beginning Monday, May 6, 2013. The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of June 10, 2013.

During this closure, local access will be maintained for residents, businesses, and emergency vehicles but detours will be posted for all thru traffic.

Detour: Eastbound Tylersville Road traffic will detour south on Seward Road, east on Union Centre Boulevard, and north on Ohio 747. 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.
