Hamilton Mason at Lesourdsville West Chester closed starting June 18

Post Date:06/12/2018 9:05 AM

Work begins June 18 to construct a new roundabout at Hamilton Mason Road and LeSourdsville West Chester Road (view map), according to County Engineer Greg Wilkens. Located on the Liberty / West Chester Township border, the intersection has seen increasing amounts of traffic as residential and commercial development continues to blossom in southeast Butler County.

The project will involve construction of a single-lane roundabout with curb and gutter, lighting, and a new closed storm sewer system.

A construction contract was awarded to Barrett Paving Materials, Inc. of Middletown which submitted a low bid of $1,126,553. Funding will consist of State OPWC grant money with local matching funds provided by the BCEO and Liberty and West Chester Townships.

All work is scheduled for completion by late September; however, the intersection will reopen to traffic by August 15, 2018, weather permitting.

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

All four legs of the Hamilton Mason Road / LeSourdsville West Chester Road intersection will close for construction beginning Monday, June 18, 2018. The new roundabout is tentatively scheduled to open to traffic by August 15, 2018, before school starts; however, off-road work will continue into September as crews install lighting and final landscaping.

During the intersection closure, local access will be maintained for residents, businesses, and emergency vehicles up to the project limits, but motorists will not be permitted to pass through the actual construction zone. Detours will be posted for all thru traffic.

  • Detour for Hamilton Mason Road: Eastbound Hamilton Mason Road traffic will detour south on Ohio 747, east on Tylersville Road, and north on Cincinnati Dayton Road to Hamilton Mason. Westbound traffic will reverse this route.
  • Detour for LeSourdsville West Chester Road: Northbound LeSourdsville West Chester Road traffic will detour west on Tylersville Road, north on Ohio 747, and east on Princeton Road to LeSourdsville West Chester. Southbound traffic will reverse this route.
