    A major roadway improvement along Yankee Road is under way effective July 5, 2017. This involves closure of Yankee to thru traffic from Dutchland Parkway to Princeton Road. Local access will be maintained for residents and businesses along Yankee Road and to adjoining subdivisions; however, construction will be phased so staging of traffic flow will vary. Project phasing is as follows:

    Phase 1: Complete. Yankee Road / Princeton Road intersection open. Roundabout construction is complete.

    Phase 2: Complete. Yankee Road open to local traffic between Wyandot Lane and Princeton Road. Bridge replacement is complete.

    Phase 3: Complete. Bridge widening on Yankee Road just south of Wyandot Lane is complete.

    Phase 4: Complete. Wyandot Lane / Yankee Road intersection reconstruction is complete.

    UPDATE 12/13/17: Construction will be suspended for the winter beginning at 5:00 p.m. Friday, December 15, 2017 and resume in spring 2018. Yankee Road and all connecting streets will be open to thru traffic during this period. When construction resumes, Yankee Road will be re-closed to thru and commuter traffic but will remain open to local residents and businesses. (Full news release.)

    Phase 5: Widening of Yankee Road from Princeton Road to Dutchland Parkway with the majority of construction from Maple Creek Drive south to Dutchland. All roads will be open to local traffic only. Thru traffic will be rerouted.
    Phase 5 detour: Northbound Yankee Road traffic will detour north on Cincinnati Dayton Road and west on Princeton Road to Yankee. Southbound traffic will reverse this route.

    All work is tentatively scheduled for completion by mid-June 2018, weather permitting.
