2017-18 Yankee Road project

Yankee Road will be closed to thru traffic between Dutchland Parkway and Princeton Road beginning Wednesday, July 5. Local access will be maintained for residents and businesses along Yankee Road and to adjoining subdivisions; however, staging of traffic flow will vary depending upon the phase. Project phasing will include:

Phase 1: All four legs of the Yankee Road/Princeton Road intersection will be closed for roundabout construction. Approximate length of closure is 3 months.
Phase 1 detours: Northbound Yankee Road traffic will detour north on Cincinnati-Dayton Road and west on Millikin Road to Yankee. Southbound traffic will reverse this route. Eastbound Princeton Road traffic will detour north on Ohio 747, east on Millikin Road, and south on Cincinnati-Dayton Road to Princeton. Westbound traffic will reverse this route.

Phase 2:
Yankee Road will be closed halfway between Wyandot Lane and Princeton Road for bridge replacement. Approximate length of closure is 1 month.
Phase 2 detour: Northbound Yankee Road traffic will detour north on Cincinnati-Dayton Road and west on Princeton Road to Yankee. Southbound traffic will reverse this route.

Phase 3: Yankee Road will be closed just south of Wyandot Lane for bridge widening. Approximate length of closure is 2 - 3 weeks. 
Phase 3 detour: Northbound Yankee Road traffic will detour north on Cincinnati-Dayton Road and west on Princeton Road to Yankee. Southbound traffic will reverse this route.

Construction will be suspended for the winter and will resume in spring 2018 beginning with Phase 4. All roads will be open through the winter months.


Phase 4: Wyandot Lane will be closed at Yankee Road intersection for improvements. Approximate length of closure is 45 days.
Phase 4 detour: There will be no access to Yankee Road from Wyandot Lane during this phase. Motorists will exit and enter the subdivision via Wyandot at Cincinnati-Dayton Road or by way of Stonehenge Boulevard.

Phase 5:
Widening of Yankee Road from Princeton Road to Dutchland Parkway. All roads will be open to local traffic only. Thru traffic will be rerouted.
Phase 5 detour: Northbound Yankee Road traffic will detour north on Cincinnati Dayton Road and west on Princeton Road to Yankee. Southbound traffic will reverse this route.

All work is tentatively scheduled for completion by mid-June 2018.
