The date of the second, four-day closing on Butler-Warren Road to replace culverts in Liberty Township is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Thursday and end by Monday evening. The closure was originally scheduled to take place July 19, but severe thunderstorms on July 18 forced construction to be rescheduled.
The road will close at between Sweet Briar Court and Four Bridges Drive.
During the closure, northbound Butler-Warren road traffic will detour west on Liberty Way, north on Cincinnati-Dayton Road and east on Bethany Road. Southbound traffic would reverse the road.
The closing is needed for work being done in conjunction with the nearly $10 million Butler-Warren Road widening and improvement project that began earlier this year.
Last week, the Engineer’s Office in Butler and Warren counties announced that Butler-Warren Road is now open between Tylersville Road and Liberty Way/Mason Road. This completion signifies the end of phase 1 of the Butler-Warren Road project.
However, motorists should be aware that crews will continue to perform some additional off road work and the top course of blacktop is not yet in place. Final paving and lane striping will be completed once Phases 2 and 3 of the Butler-Warren Road improvement are complete.
Phase 2 will involve work mostly in the area of the Liberty Way/Mason Road intersection. Phase 3 will involve widening the road between Liberty Way/Mason Road and Bethany Road. Thru traffic will be maintained while both of these phases.
