Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that improvements to Princeton Road in Liberty Township are scheduled to begin April 22. The project involves a distance of approximately 1.44 miles from Cincinnati Dayton Road to Butler Warren Road.
Improvements include widening the travel lanes to 12 feet in each direction and adding 2-foot paved shoulders. Left turn lanes will be installed at Winter Hazel Drive and Cambridge Trail. There will also be some profile grade adjustments to improve sight distance, and due to the added pavement width, existing culverts and driveways will require extensions of structure and re-grading.
“The Princeton Road project is important for Liberty Township as it represents a significant safety project for the community. Traffic along Princeton Road has increased with the community’s growth so the project will result in consistent lane widths and added shoulders the entire stretch from Cincinnati-Dayton to Butler Warren Road. We appreciate the community’s patience during the construction period as we improve the safety of Princeton Road,” said Liberty Township Administrator Kristen Bitonte.
A construction contract for the project has been awarded to John R. Jurgensen Company, which submitted a low bid of $1,649,024. Funding consists of local Liberty Township funds.Closures, and Maintenance of Traffic
Construction is expected to last approximately three months, and during this time it will be necessary to close Princeton Road. Detour will be as follows:
DETOUR: Eastbound Princeton Road traffic will detour north on Cincinnati Dayton Road, east on Millikin Road, and south on Butler Warren Road. Westbound Princeton Road traffic will reverse this route.
