Lytle Tunnel work requires local road closures
Hamilton County (Tuesday, March 29, 2016) – Concrete work for the Lytle Tunnel project will require lane and road closures next week.
Pike Street will be closed between Lytle and Fourth streets beginning at 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 5, reopening at approximately 8 a.m. the following day. In addition, the southern two lanes of Fourth Street will be closed between Pike and Broadway streets during this time. Access to local businesses will be maintained.
Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place prior to the work zone to alert motorists of the upcoming lane and road 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.
