West Chester Township
UPDATE AUGUST 11, 2023: THE ROAD IS OPEN TO TRAFFIC, THOUGH CONSTRUCTION WILL CONTINUE INTO THE FALL.
The Butler County Engineer’s Office reports that Tylersville Road will close just east of Lakota Springs Drive to approximately 500 feet east of Lakota Hills Drive for a road widening project beginning Monday, June 26, 2023. Funded federally and by the BCEO and Butler County Water & Sewer, the $2.3 million contract was awarded to the lowest bidder, Rack & Ballauer, Excavating Co., Inc.
The project involves widening approximately 0.45 miles of Tylersville Road from two lanes to three with the addition of curb and gutter and a storm sewer. The improved roadway will have one through lane in each direction and a center two-way left-turn lane, which will reduce rear-end crashes and near misses from stopped or slowed vehicles waiting to turn left.
Most of the construction will occur as traffic is maintained with the use of flaggers; however, utility delays have made it necessary for the contractor to close the road to all through traffic until August 11, 2023, in order to complete the project by Thanksgiving.
During the seven-week closure, local access will be maintained on Tylersville Road; subdivision residents should use an alternate route outside of the construction zone.
Detour: Eastbound Tylersville Road traffic will detour north on Lesourdsville West Chester Road, east on Hamilton Mason Road, south on Mauds Hughes Road, and south on Cincinnati Dayton Road. Westbound traffic will reverse this route.
Motorists are encouraged to check the BCEO PROJECTS MAP, as well as Facebook and Twitter @bceonews, for possible date and status changes concerning this and other closures/advisories.
