West Chester project is actually the major portion of a contract

Drive intersection a half mile to the east. That project, completed
last year, involved the addition of turn lanes on Tylersville,

The Butler County Engineer's Office leveraged State Issue 2 money
to help fund 80 to 90 percent of the cost with BCEO revenues
