    OHIO 747
    Liberty Township

    Traffic Advisory: A roadway improvement to Ohio 747 between Princeton Road and Millikin Road gets under way February 12, 2018. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained at all times with the exception of a 3-day weekend closure for a culvert replacement. Those dates will be posted here once they have been determined. There will also be occasional lane shifts on 747 to accommodate removal of old pavement and move traffic onto permanent pavement. Access to businesses and side streets will be maintained throughout the course of the project; however, a 30-day closure of Willow Ridge Drive for drainage, curb, and pavement tie-in will be necessary. This closure is most likely to occur in mid-spring. All work is slated for completion in mid-September 2018.

    Motorists may encounter occasional delays through the construction zone and are encouraged to find alternate routes in an effort to reduce possible congestion.

    Liberty Township

    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 1/17/18: Construction suspended for the winter effective December 15, 2017. Will resume March 12, 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. Completion tentatively scheduled for late May 2018. (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.
