TYLERSVILLE ROAD IMPROVEMENT AT GRACE MEADOWS
Tylersville Road Closing August 12
West Chester Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that construction will begin August 12th on an intersection improvement at Tylersville Road and Grace Meadows Way. The project is intended to address sight distance issues and ease turning movements into and out of Grace Meadows.

Specifically, the project involves adjusting the profile on the east leg of Tylersville to fill in a dip, widening Tylersville to the east and west plus adding two-foot paved shoulders, and constructing a new left turn lane on eastbound Tylersville for Grace Meadows Way. A culvert will also be replaced as part of the project.

"We continue to make improvements to Tylersville Road, once a rural carriage path across rolling terrain, now a major east-west artery through bustling West Chester Township," said Wilkens. "The addition of subdivisions, schools, commercial, and retail development along its ten mile length in Butler County makes it imperative that we continue our program of safety and capacity upgrades. This particular project will facilitate safer traffic flow along Tylersville and through the intersection."

A construction contract was awarded to Barrett Paving Materials, Inc. of Cincinnati which submitted a low bid of $478,996. Funding will consist of 100 percent local BCEO money.

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

Tylersville Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

Will close east of Grace Meadows Way, between Grace Meadows and Chantilly Drive, in conjunction with the intersection improvement at Grace Meadows beginning Monday, August 12, 2013. Grace Meadows Way and the west leg of Tylersville Road will remain open during construction. Tylersville Road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of October 7, 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 Ohio 747, east on Union Centre Boulevard, and north on Cincinnati Dayton Road. 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.
