Interstate 71/Fields-Ertel Road intersection improvement
Fields-Ertel Road/Gregory Road
Warren County (Thursday, April 13, 2017) – Various lane closures will be required next week to accommodate a new traffic pattern for the Interstate 71/Fields-Ertel Road intersection improvement project.
Beginning at 9 p.m. Wednesday, April 19, lane closures will be in place at the Fields-Ertel/Mason-Montgomery road intersection, ending just east of the Fields-Ertel Road/Royal Point Drive intersection.
Lane closures will be complete by 6 a.m. the following day but if necessary, these lane closures will be in effect at the same time Thursday, April 20. Traffic will be maintained with flaggers.
The new traffic pattern will be two through lanes on east and westbound Fields-Ertel Road and one lane in each direction on Gregory Road. This pattern will be in effect until approximately the end of June.
All work is contingent upon weather. Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the work zone and lane closures.
To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
