The Butler County Engineer’s Office reports the start of roundabout construction at the Five Points intersection on Monday, March 14, 2022. The first construction phase requires a 60-day closure of Hancock Avenue from the intersection to approximately 100 feet southeast of Bender Avenue. The road will be closed to all through traffic and is tentatively scheduled to reopen on May 13, 2022, weather permitting. Hamilton Mason Road and Grand Boulevard will remain open until the final weeks of construction.
Federally and locally funded by the Ohio Department of Transportation, the BCEO, and the City of Hamilton, the multi-phased construction project will improve the five-road intersection by converting it to a single-lane roundabout with curb and gutter, storm sewer installation, and new pedestrian facilities. With the lowest bid of $2,239,639, Rack & Ballauer Excavating will build the roundabout, scheduled for completion by the end of July 2022.
Hancock Avenue (Phase 1) Detour: Northwest-bound Hancock Avenue traffic will detour west on Grand Boulevard and north on Harmon Avenue. Southeast-bound traffic will reverse this route.
