    FEDERAL FUNDS SECURED FOR UNION TOWNSHIP ROAD IMPROVEMENTS

Butler County Engineer Dean C. Foster announced today that he has obtained guaranteed funding for three major road projects in Union Township. Seven million dollars in Federal Highway-Urban funds will be used to widen:

    1) Cincinnati Dayton Road from Crescentville Road to West Chester Road;
    2) Tylersville Road from LeSourdsville West Chester Road to Cincinnati Dayton Road;
    3) Tylersville Road from Cincinnati Dayton Road to Wetherington Drive.

All three projects will involve adding a center turn lane to improve traffic flow and widening the shoulders for added safety Foster explained at today's Southeast Butler County Chamber of Commerce luncheon.

Federal Highway funds were approved by the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) after Foster lobbied for the much needed projects. "These newly acquired funds will allow us to improve the lengthy stretches in between several spot improvements that have already been completed," noted Foster. "Our engineers can now begin project design and environmental studies can commence this year with construction likely by 2004."

The BCEO has already constructed several intersection improvements along Cincinnati Dayton Road, including widening and adding turn lanes at Crescentville Road, Allen Road, and Dimmick Road, plus realigning and widening the intersection at West Chester Road.

The Engineer's Office also completed a major safety improvement to the Tylersville / LeSourdsville West Chester Road intersection in 1998. Beginning late this year, the BCEO will improve the Tylersville / Cincinnati Dayton Road intersection as part of a major rehabilitation project scheduled for Cincinnati Dayton Road.
