As part of the U.S. 42 widening project, culvert work will require the closure of a portion of U.S. 42 next week, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation.
The closure will be in place between Cox Road and Tylersville Road, just north of the entrances to the Pisgah Youth Park baseball fields, 9116 Columbus-Cincinnati Road, and the West Chester Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 9117 Columbus-Cincinnati Road.
The closure will begin Monday, June 11 and is scheduled to be completed by 5 p.m., Friday, June 15 with U.S. 42 reopened to traffic at this time.
Northbound U.S. 42 traffic will be detoured north to Cox Road to east on Tylersville Road to U.S. 42. Southbound traffic will be detoured west to Tylersville Road to south on Cox Road to U.S. 42.
Access to all addresses will be maintained with addresses north of 9117 Cincinnati-Columbus Road accessible from Tylersville Road and addresses south of and including 9117 accessible from Cox Road.
Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place prior to the work zone to alert motorists of the upcoming road closure. To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic.
The completion date for the entire U.S. 42 project is June 2013. The project includes widening U.S. 42 to three lanes. The widening area will provide a through lane in each direction and a middle two-way left-turn lane, from Fields-Ertel Road north to Butler-Warren Road. It also includes left turn lanes on both approaches of Dimmick Road.
Crews hope to have all major items completed by Dec. 2012 with the exception of surface course asphalt, final striping and final grade/landscaping.
