EMERGENCY CONTRACT AWARDED FOR MILLIKIN ROAD REPAIRS

Butler County Engineer Dean C. Foster reports that an emergency contract was awarded this morning for roadway repairs on Millikin Road in Liberty Township. County Commissioners awarded a contract to the John R. Jurgensen Company which submitted a low bid of $207,642.

Repairs to various sections of Millikin Road are necessary due to severe winter weather damage incurred earlier this month. The worst section is between LeSourdsville West Chester Road North and LeSourdsville West Chester Road South, which was closed last Monday when Foster determined that the road had become so heavily damaged it was unsafe for motorists. Damage of this type occurs from the winter elements of freezing and thawing plus road salt. Plowing and heavy truck traffic also aggravate the problem.

Crews will cut and re-base several sections of Millikin Road between Ohio 747 and Yankee Road for the next two to three weeks. Most of the work will be performed while traffic is maintained; however, the section near LeSourdsville West Chester Road will remain closed until repairs are complete.
