Motorists who use Ohio 235 (Xenia Drive) from I-675 to get to Fairborn will be rerouted this week to accommodate improvements at a railroad crossing.

Starting Wednesday, June 1 through Friday, commuters will need to exit the interstate at Dayton Yellow Springs Road or Broad Street, according to a release from the city of Fairborn.

Northbound traffic on 235 will be rerouted through Yellow Springs-Fairfield Road and Black Lane up to Broad Street.
