The Middletown City Council on Tuesday night approved a $5.97 million contract with Kelchner Inc., of Springboro, for the construction of Phase 3 of the Yankee Road project between Lafayette Avenue and Oxford State Road.

The project will mean the total reconstruction of the roadway including widening, realignment, traffic signal and water main replacement and storm sewer improvements.

In addition, the roadway will have heavy-duty pavement to accommodate truck traffic, according to city officials. City officials said construction would begin this spring.

The Yankee Road project will complement the $6.5 million, two-mile widening and reconstruction of Oxford State Road from Yankee Road to Spurlino Materials, which is projected to be completed in late 2017.
