According to a press release from West Chester Township, the U.S. 42 widening project remains on schedule. The completion date for the entire project is June 2013.
It is still the goal of Ohio Department of Transportation and the contractors to complete this part of the project before Dec. 1.
Over the winter months, crews will address drainage on the east side between Fields-Ertel and West Chester Road, and on the north end of the project from West Chester Road to Butler Warren.
A very tentative look ahead to 2012/2013 is to have all major items completed by Dec. 2012 with the exception of surface course asphalt, final striping and final grade/landscaping.
Weather conditions will impact schedule.
While the construction continues, businesses on U.S. 42 will remain open.
West Chester Township offers a monthly construction update meeting for property owners in the impacted area. The meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30 a.m. in Township Hall, 9113 Cincinnati-Dayton Road. Updates are also available on the township’s website www.WestChesterOH.org.
Water main work on West Chester Road: Butler County has begun work to replace a water main on West Chester Road between John Road and Barret Road. Traffic on West Chester Road is being maintained throughout the project, with the exception of an anticipated one-day closure to complete the project. The replacement project will take approximately 90 days, weather permitting.
Accident cleared up: Allen Road between Union Centre and Muhlhauser road re-opened around noon Monday after a traffic accident caused damage to a utility pole.
