Columbia Road Relocation Update, April 12, 2017

The Warren County Transportation Improvement District (WCTID) has announced that a full closure on Western Row Road will be put into place beginning Tuesday, April 18, 2017. The closure is expected to be in place until Friday, June 2, 2017, weather permitting.

The location of the closure is from just east of the northbound I-71 exit ramp between Columbia Road and where the road takes a 90-degree bend (near the Duke Energy substation).

During construction, Western Row Road will remain open to local access only, for properties located within the project area. Specifically, Western Row Road will remain open to 0.25 mile east of Columbia Road to address 3033/2995, and to Northgate Drive 1.0 mile north of Socialville-Fosters Road. Local traffic will be maintained within the closed portion of the Western Row Road to addresses 2946, 2988, and 2994 Western Row Road with access open to/from these residences through the south barricades (toward Socialville-Fosters).

A detour route that uses Columbia Road to Socialville-Fosters Road to Western Row Road will be put into place and marked by signage throughout the area.

This closure is part of the Columbia Road Relocation project, which will support better traffic flow on Western Row Road by relocating Columbia Road and making improvements to the northbound I-71 off-ramp at Western Row Road.
