U.S. Route 27 closure scheduled for culvert replacement
Butler County (Friday, June 17, 2016) – The culvert work on U.S. 27 between Kirchling Road and State Route 129 will be complete this afternoon, with the road open to traffic.
Beginning at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 21, culvert replacement on U.S. 27 over a tributary to Four Mile Creek, between Stillwell-Beckett and Stephenson roads, will require closing U.S. 27 for approximately three weeks.
The posted detour uses SR 130 and SR 177 and SR 73.
Motorists should expect delays. All work is weather dependent. Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place prior to the work zone to alert motorists of the upcoming road closure.
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.
