KYLES STATION ROAD AT YANKEE ROAD GETTING ROUNDABOUT
Intersection Closing June 10
Liberty Township

Crews will begin construction Monday on a new roundabout at the Kyles Station / Yankee Road intersection, according to Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens. This will mark the County's sixth modern roundabout as the trend toward these safer intersection alternatives continues.

"We've had great success with our previous roundabouts where they have significantly reduced accident rates and improved efficiency," Wilkens said. "Their popularity with the motoring public has grown as well. Our experience has been that once drivers become accustomed to modern roundabouts they genuinely like them and recognize the safety benefits firsthand."

A construction contract for the project was awarded to W.G. Stang, LLC. of Hamilton which submitted a low bid of $609,922. State OPWC money will be utilized to pay for about half the cost with the remaining amount consisting of local BCEO match money and Liberty Township funds.

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

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

All four legs of the Kyles Station Road / Yankee Road intersection will close beginning Monday, June 10, 2013 for the roundabout construction. The intersection is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of August 19, 2013. Revised 8/15/13 -- Due to persistent wet weather during the early phases of construction, the intersection has been rescheduled to open by the end of the week of September 16, 2013.

During this closure, local access will be maintained for residents, businesses, and emergency vehicles up to the project limits, but motorists will not be permitted to pass through the actual construction zone. Detours will be posted for all thru traffic.

Detour for Kyles Station Road: Eastbound Kyles Station Road traffic will detour south on Ohio 747, east on Millikin Road, north on Cincinnati Dayton Road, and west on Kyles Station. Westbound traffic will reverse this route.

Detour for Yankee Road: Northbound Yankee Road traffic will detour east on Millikin Road, north on Cincinnati Dayton Road, west on Linn Road, and south on Yankee. Southbound traffic will reverse this route.
