LIBERTY FAIRFIELD ROAD IMPROVEMENT TO RESUME
Road Closing April 1
Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that work on the Liberty Fairfield Road improvement begun last fall is slated to resume April 1. The project, located between Logsdon's Woods Drive and Princeton Road, involves widening the existing lanes from ten to twelve feet, adding two-foot paved shoulders plus an additional two-foot earth berm, and reconstructing driveways and drainage to accommodate the pavement widening. Additionally, a small bridge has already been replaced as part of the project.
Construction had to be suspended in December with the onset of winter. The remainder of the work is expected to be completed by early May, weather permitting.
