Trebein Road will be closed this weekend to accommodate work to install new water mains in Greene County.
Trebein will be closed north of Dayton-Xenia and Hilltop roads. The road will close at 7 a.m. Saturday and reopen at 6 a.m. Monday, according to the Greene County Sanitary Engineering Department.

Motorists will be able to get around the closure by taking Dayton-Xenia Road to Ankeney Road and then back onto Trebein Road.
The work is part of a large water system project to install about seven miles of pipe that will serve the areas of Wilberforce, the village of Cedarville and Shawnee Hills.
The work comes after the county opted last year to not renew its contract for Xenia’s water service.
It will be voluntary to connect to the new water lines as many residents have access to well water. If a resident wants to tap in to the new line, for some it could cost nearly $9,000 to do that, county officials have said.
County Administrator Brandon Huddleson said the project is currently under budget at $6.7 million. He said the project is also “slightly ahead of schedule.”
The county’s contract with Xenia expires in June 2018. The county is obligated to have water service available by then to any residents impacted by the change.
