WASHINGTON TWP, Ohio (WDTN) - Drivers who use Austin Boulevard are seeing orange.
Crews pulled out the "road closed" signs on Tuesday blocking traffic to the half mile stretch of roadway between Washington Church and Yankee Street.
Paul Gruner, Montgomery County's Chief Deputy Engineer, says that currently 13 thousand cars use that stretch of roadway everyday. By the year 2033, that number is projected to jump to 20 thousand daily.
"The traffic has gotten a lot heavier since the interchange went in, certain times of the day, particularly rush hour. We'll be adding lanes to the approach of the Yankee intersection that will help quite a bit," said Gruner.
Gruner told 2 NEWS the road will be shut completely for two weeks, then reopen to one lane for the next year. During that time crews will widen Austin from the existing two lanes, to four lanes with a turn lane. The total dollar amount of the project is $5.5 million.
