The Butler County engineer announced an extended road closing in Fairfield Twp. beginning next week for sewer construction work.
Installation of a new sewer main by the county Water & Sewer Department will require closure of Headgates Road in two phases. The road will close from Dec. 17-20, then work will be on hiatus until Jan. 2 when crews will close it again until mid-March.
During these time periods the road will be closed to through traffic from Ohio 4 to Canal Road, however, access will be maintained for local residents, school buses and postal deliveries.
Detour for the project: Northbound Headgates Road will detour southwest on Ohio 4, north on Campbell Drive and then northeast on Canal Road to Headgates. Southbound traffic will reverse this route.
