Work began this week on Tylersville and Beckett roads for the installation if a new roundabout, prompting a summer-long closure in front of the Lakota West Freshman Campus.
The Butler County Engineer’s Office reports the roads will be closed to all through-traffic, however, local drivers will still have access up to the construction zone. At the start of construction a temporary road will be installed east of the school as an entrance for staff and summer activities.
With the lowest bid of $1.87 million, W.G. Stang, LLC was awarded the ten-week project, including sidewalk reconstruction, lighting, a rapid flashing beacon installation, and storm sewer improvements. Funded by West Chester Township TIF and Butler County Water & Sewer, the roundabout project is tentatively scheduled for completion on Aug. 11 before students return to school.
Beckett Road Detour: Southbound Beckett Road traffic will detour south on Ohio 747 and east on Smith Road.
Tylersville Road Detour: Eastbound Tylersville Road traffic will detour north on Ohio 747, east on Hamilton Mason Road, and south on Lesourdsville West Chester Road. Westbound traffic will reverse this route.
