For Immediate Release

Road Closing July 6
Revised closing date: July 13
Revised closing date: July 20
West Chester Township

Update: July 9, 2015 -- Beckett Road closure between Global Way and Barb's Way has been postponed again. The new closing date is now Monday, July 20, 2015. Originally scheduled for July 6 and then postponed by a week, the start of construction has now been delayed by two weeks due to persistent wet weather. The contractor, Barrett Paving Materials, is behind on other road projects as a result of the rain and is unable to start construction on Beckett Road. The Beckett Road project also involves some off road dirt work that requires drier conditions. If the rainy summer continues and wet conditions prevail, this project and others may continue to experience startup and completion delays. Original news release text with revised closing and opening dates below.

Update: June 29, 2015 -- Beckett Road closure originally scheduled for July 6 has been postponed due to wet weather. Beckett Road has been rescheduled to close beginning Monday, July 13, 2015. Original news release text with revised closing and opening dates below.

Improvements to a portion of Beckett Road between West Chester Road and Union Centre Boulevard are set to get under way starting July 20. A 1,500-foot stretch of roadway will be improved from Global Way to Barb's Way, according to Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens.

The project consists of widening the existing lanes and shoulders, performing some minor storm sewer upgrades, and resurfacing.

A construction contract has been awarded to Barrett Paving Materials, Inc. of Middletown which submitted a low bid of $248,863. A West Chester Township TIF will fund the project.

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

Beckett Road will close between Global Way and Barb's Way for the roadway improvement beginning Monday, July 20, 2015. The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of August 31, 2015.

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

Detour: Northbound Beckett Road traffic will detour east on West Chester Road, then north and west on Union Centre Boulevard to Beckett. Southbound traffic will reverse this route.
