The Butler County Engineer's Office has announced that an extensive roadway improvement to Ohio 747 in Liberty Township began on Monday, February 12, 2018. This major safety project will widen the heavily traveled two-lane stretch of road to five lanes - two northbound, two southbound and a center turn lane - from Princeton Road to Millikin Road, a distance of 1.1 miles. Right turn lanes will be added on northbound 747 to eastbound Princeton Road and on eastbound Millikin Road to southbound 747. The project also includes construction of a shared-use path and sidewalks along both sides of the roadway. Additionally, curb and gutter will be added, signals and storm sewers upgraded and several culverts will be replaced.Construction will take place while maintaining the current two lanes of traffic a majority of the time. Work is expected to get under way next week and will be completed by mid-September, weather permitting. The project was originally slated to begin last fall but was delayed due to utility relocation issues.
