A stretch of East Dixie Drive near Exit 47 off Interstate 75 is undergoing construction that is causing lane closures, according to the city of West Carrollton.
Construction between Dryden Road and Ohio 741 started today and is expected to close a lane at a time until completion, expected to be May 24, according to the city.
Exit 47 is a key traffic portal for those working in downtown Dayton, Kettering, Moraine and other nearby communities. Traffic along Dixie in that area was slow this morning as work began.
Specifically, the $284,785 road project is being done from between the railroad overpass east of Dryden Road and Ohio 741, or Springboro Pike, according to West Carrollton officials.
Work will include a four-inch deep milling and resurfacing of the street, as well as pavement markings, traffic signal loop detection, and miscellaneous pavement repairs on East Dixie, according to the city.
The city received $190,187 in federal funding through the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission. The local matching funds, $94,598, are provided by the city’s motor vehicle license tax fund, according to the city.
Barrett Paving Materials of West Carrollton is the contractor for the project.
