3. Bridge widening in Liberty Twp. closes Yankee Road

A bridge replacement between Wyandot Lane and Princeton Road in Liberty Twp. is still under construction and Yankee remains closed to all traffic at this location.

In addition, the latest phase of the Yankee Road improvement project has started. This involves a bridge widening just south of Wyandot Lane.

The majority of this phase will be performed while maintaining local traffic; however, a one-day closure will be necessary on Tuesday, Oct. 17, according to the Butler County Engineer’s Office.

Local residents living in between the two closed bridges will be required to utilize Wyandot Lane to access their portion of Yankee Road until the bridge south of Wyandot reopens to traffic, according to the engineer’s office.
