Warren County construction update

WARREN COUNTY (Wednesday, June 18, 2014) – The following construction projects in Warren County will require various lane closures this week:

Interstate 71 at Mason-Montgomery/Fields Ertel: Right lane closure of northbound I-71, beginning at 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 18 and Thursday, June 19, for placement of barrier wall; all lanes will reopen to traffic by 5 a.m. the following day.

Interstate 71: Various lane closures on north and southbound I-71 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, June 20 for pavement repair operations. The closure for northbound I-71will begin two miles north of the Wilmington Road exit; the closure for southbound I-71 will begin seven miles south of the SR 73 exit.

State Route 73 at I-75: Various lane closures on westbound SR 73, from 9 p.m. Thursday, June 19 to 6 a.m. Friday, June 20 for installation of barrier wall.

U.S. 42: With reconstruction of the northbound side of U.S. 42 in Warren and Greene counties nearly complete, work to transition one lane each of north and southbound traffic onto the new pavement will take place Friday, June 20.

Once this transition is complete, work will commence on the southbound section of U.S.  42 which will be closed to traffic for the duration of the project.

Work to implement Friday’s traffic switch will begin with northbound traffic at approximately 8 a.m. near the Red Stewart Airfield, located south of the village of Waynesville in Warren County. Once that switch is complete and the traffic signal at U.S. 42 and SR 73 is operational, southbound traffic will be moved to the newly constructed section of U.S. 42, beginning at East Centerville Road in Greene County.

Upon completion of the project this October 2014, U.S. 42 will be restored to two lanes of traffic on both north and southbound U.S. 42.

Arrow boards and signs will be in place prior to the work zone to alert motorists of these various work operations.  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.​
