Rich / Davis / Primrose Intersection Safety Improvements UPDATE

Posted on: December 3, 2018 4:00 pm Tags: Public works, Road & traffic

Detour Map

Deerfield Township - Deerfield Township, in partnership with the Warren County Engineer’s office, began work in October on the realignment of Primrose Drive with Rich Road at the Davis Road intersection. This project is necessary to improve safety for drivers in the area. The realignment greatly increases visibility and reduces conflict points that can lead to injury-related crashes. 

To facilitate the continued progress of the safety improvement project, Davis Road at the intersection with Primrose and Rich will be closed from December 5th to December 7th from 7:30am to 4:30pm. Attached is a map which shows the location of the roadwork and detours that will be in place.

We hope that the timing of these improvements reduces the inconvenience to the traveling public, while work is being performed.  Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this project, please do not hesitate to contact Chip Cowan, Public Works Project Coordinator at 513-701-6978 or Billy Highfill, Public Works Director at 513-701-6974
