State Route 49 to Close during Sewer Construction

Dayton, Ohio (March 23, 2015) – Starting on Monday, March 30, State Street (SR 49) in the Village of Phillipsburg will be closed due to sanitary sewer installation and construction. Traffic will be detoured in the area. The road closure is scheduled to be in place for approximately 90 days.

“Roadways must be closed to provide a safer work environment and allow for faster construction progress,” said Patrick Turnbull, director of Montgomery County Environmental Services. “We will work with the contractor to get the work done as quickly as possible to minimize the impact on businesses and residents.”

Residents are asked to be alert and drive carefully in work zones to protect their safety and the safety of construction workers. Truckers and transportation professionals should exercise extra caution and stay on appropriate state routes – residential roads cannot accommodate large trucks.

Coming from the south, trucks will still be able to access Martin Marietta. Coming from the north, A. Brown & Sons Nursery will still be open and accessible.

Construction of the $4.7 million public sanitary sewer system installation began in May 2014, and is scheduled to be completed in November 2015. The project will impact 255 properties in Phillipsburg and 10 in Clay Township.

Residents or businesses with any questions or concerns about the project are encouraged to call (937) 825-6722 for assistance.

Background on Phillipsburg Sewer Installation Project

In 2009, the OEPA discovered that sewage was contaminating storm drains and ditches throughout Phillipsburg. The OEPA then issued orders for Phillipsburg to correct the problem.

In 2012, Montgomery County Environmental Services signed an agreement with Phillipsburg to address the problem by installing, owning and operating a new sanitary sewer system.
