U.S. Route 27 resurfacing to begin next spring
Butler County (Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2016) – Resurfacing, guardrail replacement and pavement repair on U.S. Route 27 between Hussey Road and just north of Wallace Road will begin next spring.
The project also includes rehabilitation of the bridge over Lick Run, replacing the concrete slab superstructure, the approach slabs and the abutments.
Traffic during paving will be maintained with flagging operations. Traffic during the bridge rehabilitation will be maintained using temporary traffic signals at each end of the bridge to allow for part-width construction, maintaining one lane of traffic. Driveway access will also be maintained at all times during bridge construction.
The $1.6 million project is expected to be complete in September 2017.
Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place 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.
