Good news for area residents: Bethany and Irwin-Simpson roads have reopened.
Bethany Road in Mason, which closed between Mason-Montgomery Road to Heartwood Lane on Monday for surface improvements, reopened Friday several days ahead of schedule.
The construction is part of the ongoing Bethany Road Roundabout Project, which began on June 3 and is expected to be completed in June 2014.
In Deerfield Township, Irwin-Simpson Road reopened between Snider Road and west of Butler-Warren Road.
The closure — for road-widening work — was expected to complete in mid-October but was extended to November due to inclement weather and construction issues, township officials said.
The roadway is expected to close again in the spring so that crews can apply finish course asphalt and permanent road striping.
Nearby Snider Road remains closed between Squires Gate Drive and Irwin-Simpson Road for a road-widening project. That closure, which began Sept. 16, is expected to complete around mid-November.
