Mann said the center turn lanes would be important not only for the new Fairfield Freshman School, but also “for the businesses, such as Fox Towing, along that stretch (for big vehicles).” “The existing narrow road is really a rural type road,” he said. “There’s hardly any shoulder and drop offs on the side. So we’ll upgrade it to a curbed road. It will be much more of an urban/suburban-type road. It will be much safer.”

The project also includes relocating utility poles and removal of some trees. On Monday, Mann said he’ll ask City Council to add the installation of the LED street lights to the project.
“It will be much safer and open when lit up,” Mann said.
Before the closure, portable electronic message boards will be posted to communicate the upcoming changes in traffic patterns. A detour will be posted directing traffic around the construction site via Symmes Road to Bilstein Boulevard/Holden Boulevard.
