Nighttime milling and repaving of Wilmington Pike north of Interstate 675 to state Route 725 in Centerville is scheduled to begin tonight at 7 p.m.

Construction hours are from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Traffic will be maintained in both directions at all times, though nightly lane closures are expected. Traffic delays could intermittently impact on- and off-ramps to I-675.

The project is a joint effort between the City of Centerville, Greene County and the Ohio Department of Transportation.

In total, the project has a projected cost of $1,282,009, though grant funding from the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission will pay $489,692 of that amount.

Centerville City Engineer Jim Brinegar said, "This work will prolong the life of this busy corridor and it will provide a safer road for drivers."

All work is weather-permitting, and the project is expected to be finished in two weeks.
