Traffic Switch Scheduled for SR 4 Bypass Corridor
Butler County (Monday, Nov. 22, 2010) – As the first phase of work to construct several “superstreet” intersections on State Route 4 Bypass corridor nears completion, traffic is scheduled to be switched to new pavement next week.
Traffic will be moved to newly constructed pavement west of the current roadway from SR 129 to just north of Port Union Road. The switch will begin at 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 29, with completion targeted for 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30.
Traffic at the intersections of Symmes Road, Tylersville Road and Hamilton-Mason Road will be maintained with the assistance of law enforcement officers.
This work encompasses three projects to construct three superstreet intersections at the SR 4 Bypass and Symmes, Tylersville and Hamilton-Mason roads.
In addition to the work at each intersection, these projects will widen the Bypass from just south of Symmes Road to State Route 129.
The first of this type of intersection to be constructed in Ohio, the superstreet is designed to improve safety and travel time through the SR 4 Bypass corridor, reducing delays by up to 90 percent compared to a conventional intersection. It also features fewer conflict points than a conventional intersection, reducing the number of crashes that could occur.
Upon completion of work at the three intersections, the operation of traffic on SR 4 Bypass will proceed unchanged. Traffic on Tylersville, Hamilton Mason and Symmes desiring to proceed through or left will need to turn right at the intersection to access a U-turn lane.
