UPDATE AUGUST 18, 2021: THE PROJECT IS COMPLETE AND THE INTERSECTION/ROUNDABOUT IS OPEN.
The Butler County Engineer’s Office reports that the intersection of Millikin Road, Lesourdsville West Chester Road (south leg), and Pinckney Trail will close for a single-lane roundabout installation beginning Monday, May 24, 2021. The 12-week intersection improvement project will also include the installation of lighting and a storm sewer system.
During this closure, local access will be maintained for residents and emergency vehicles up to the project limits; however, motorists will not be able to pass through the actual construction zone. Millikin Road will remain open to northbound Lesourdsville West Chester Road from S.R. 747. The detour will be posted for all through traffic.
Detour: Eastbound Millikin Road traffic will detour south on S.R. 747, east on Princeton Road, and north on Yankee Road. Westbound traffic will reverse this route.
The Millikin Road at Lesourdsville West Chester Road Roundabout project was awarded to Kelchner, Inc. of Springboro, Ohio, which submitted the low bid of $751,968 and is funded with State, local BCEO and Liberty Township funds. The new roundabout is tentatively scheduled to open on August 13, 2021.
