Monday’s planned closing of the Millikin/Maud Hughes roads intersection in Liberty Township has been postponed one week due to the predicted inclement weather.
The intersection was scheduled to close to through traffic beginning Monday to allow for construction of a roundabout. It will now close March 10 and expected to reopen the week of May 19.
The work was delayed due the predicted storm and cold weather expected Sunday and Monday, with the unseasonable cold expected the rest of the week, said officials in the Butler County Engineer’s Office.
The roundabout will be the seventh in the county. During the closing, local access up to the project limits will be maintained for Liberty Township residents, businesses and emergency vehicles. No vehicles would be permitted to go through the construction zone.
During the closure, eastbound Millikin Road motorists will detour south on Ohio 747, east on Princeton Road, north on Yankee Road and West on Millikin. Westbound traffic would reverse the route.
Northbound Maud-Hughes Road traffic will be detoured east on Princeton Road, north on Yankee Road, west on Kyles Station Road and south on Maud-Hughes Road. Southbound traffic would reverse the route.
