The Butler County Engineer's Office reports that construction to reconfigure the interchange of State Route 129 at Liberty Way and I-75 will begin on Monday, May 10. The two-season project involves the extension of SR 129 east to a roundabout at Cox Road, north of Liberty Way. The installation of the Cox Road roundabout at the end of SR 129 hopes to provide a smoother and safer transition because it will eliminate the crisscrossing of I-75 and Liberty Way traffic. Existing ramp connections will also be reconfigured along with the construction of a new bridge. Additional ramp paving has been included in this project and funded by the state.
Construction crews will start on the west side of the roundabout installation on Cox Road, which will remain open to The Christ Hospital. Bridge and westbound SR 129 and northbound I-75 in-ramp work will also occur in the vicinity with minimal construction on SR 129 itself. Traffic will be maintained for most of the construction period, especially in the early phases. The Butler County Engineer's Office will keep the traveling public well informed about the project's progression for continued safe commuting.
The project is tentatively scheduled to be completed in November 2022.
