July roadwork will affect traffic on I-675 near Dayton Mall, Ohio 48 in Oakwood



Motorists should expect intermittent lane closures on state Route 48 in Oakwood throughout the month of July, as well as overnight lane closures on Interstate 675 near the Dayton Mall exit into mid-July.

There will be some highway lane closures on I-675 near state Route 725, also known as Miamisburg Centerville Road, from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. starting July 2 and lasting through July 16 while crews work on the bridge overhead, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation.

Traffic also will be affected by a resurfacing project on state Route 48, one of the most traveled roads in the Montgomery County suburbs south of Dayton.

Crews will be repaving state Route 48 (also known as Far Hills Avenue) from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 1 through July 31 between Sawmill Road at the Dayton border and Dorothy Lane at the Kettering border.

The average number of vehicles using Ohio 48 daily ranges from about 14,700 at Stewart Street in Dayton to more than 41,500 at Interstate 675 in Centerville, ODOT records show.

The estimated $1.75 million resurfacing project was awarded to Barrett Paving Materials Inc. with the city of Oakwood paying $345,858, Oakwood City Engineer Chris Kuzma said previously.

“There will be areas where it’s milled up. It’s that rough, grooved pavement. But it should be open and drivable for the most part,” he said.

All lanes reopened recently along that stretch following Oakwood’s $2.1 million sewer reconstruction. The project lasted several months to replace sewer lines, most which had been installed before the 1950s, Oakwood officials have said.
