The Butler County Engineer’s Office reported this week that a portion of LeSourdsville-West Chester Road will close for up to three weeks beginning Monday, July 23, while crews replace a culvert.
The road will close in West Chester Township, .6 mile north of Cherry Lane Farm Drive/Lyonhil Drive and ten feet south of Beckett Ridge Boulevard. It is expected to reopen the week of Aug. 6.
Northbound LeSourdsville-West Chester Road traffic will detour north on Cincinnati-Dayton Road and west on Tylersville Road. Southbound traffic would reverse the route.
