Road Closure Extended – Locust Corner Road

Pursuant to Section 5543.17 of the Ohio Revised Code, I have determined that a road closure is necessary on Locust Corner Road, as it is impractical to construct a temporary highway, culvert, or bridge.  Duke Energy has requested the closure of Locust Corner Road in Pierce Township. The closure is needed so that Duke can complete their scheduled utility upgrades.

The closure was scheduled to open on Friday, September 22, 2023. Due to Duke Energy assisting with Hurricane Ian in September, we will extend the closure until Saturday, October 21, 2023. The road will be closed to through traffic from 8AM to 4PM Monday through Friday. The closure is located between address 558 and Wagner Road on Locust Corner Road. The length of the detour is approximately 4.17 miles or 22,034 feet.

The Office of the Clermont County Engineer shall notify the Communication Center and other affected agencies. All advanced warning and detour signs will be erected and maintained for this project. The contractor will maintain all other detour signs. Attached is the recommended detour.

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact Amanda Beiting at the Clermont County Engineer’s Office at (513) 732-8857.
