Work begins on road project

A major road construction project in Batavia Township is currently underway.

The estimated $632,000 project, which is a joint collaboration between the Clermont County Engineer’s Office and Batavia Township, will replace a century-old bridge on Old State Route 32, improve the intersection at state Route 32 and Bauer Road, and straighten out that quarter mile portion of Old State Route 32 up to Brunk Road.

Known as the Old State Route 32 and Bauer Road Roadway Project, the portion of the road being worked on closed to traffic on Aug. 18; work is expected to be completed and the road reopened by the end of October.
