TRAFFIC SIGNALS TO BE INSTALLED AT
THREE INTERSECTIONS
 
Cox Road at Barret Road
Union Centre Blvd. at West Chester Road
U.S. 27 at S.R. 129

Butler County Engineer Dean C. Foster reports that the BCEO will install traffic signals at three major Butler County intersections this summer. The signals are intended to improve safety and traffic flow through the intersections, each of which has experienced increasing traffic counts due to the County's rapid growth:

Cox Road at Barret Road in Union Township

A contract was awarded on June 12 to the T.C. Signal Company of Cincinnati which submitted a low bid of $49,362.30. This will be the final phase of a safety upgrade that has included a realignment of the intersection, the addition of turn lanes on Cox Road, and a bridge replacement. Work on the traffic signals is expected to start in late June and be completed by the end of July.

Union Centre Boulevard at West Chester Road

A contract was awarded on May 22 to the Wagner-Smith Company of Dayton which submitted a low bid of $62,202.62. This is the final phase in the construction of the new Union Centre Boulevard from West Chester Road north to Beckett Road. (The project has also been referred to as the Allen Road Extension.) The new section of Union Centre Boulevard should be open with the new signals fully functional before school begins at the end of the summer.

U.S. 27 at S.R. 129 (Hamilton Scipio Road)

A contract will be awarded to the Wagner Smith Company on June 23 which submitted a low bid of $30,419.47. The Engineer's Office is funding approximately 50 percent of the cost and the Village of Millville is paying the other half. Installation is expected to begin by late June with completion by the end of July.
