We're continuing with improvements in the Branch-Hill Guinea Road area:
The water main replacement work will be completed tomorrow, Tuesday, April 5, weather permitting.
Immediately following the completion of this work, the reconstruction and paving of Branch Hill-Guinea Road will begin. A detour will be required while this work is taking place and will last until Tuesday, May 10, weather permitting. Please see the map below for the detour.

This work is part of the Branch Hill-Guinea Road Drainage Improvements Project, which consists of drainage improvements and widening along Branch Hill-Guinea Road between Branch Hill-Loveland and Branch Hill-Miamiville Road.
As work progresses, the Engineer's Office will continue to update the following schedule and project information:
Work to replace a deteriorated section of water main between Branch Hill-Loveland and Branch Hill-Miamiville Road
Traffic will be reduced to one lane with the use of flaggers during work hours.
- Start date: Monday, March 21, 2016
- Expected completion: Tuesday, April 5, 2016
Following the completion of the above water main replacement work, the roadway improvements will begin,
including the reconstruction and paving of Branch Hill-Guinea Road.
Improvements will include 12' travel lanes and 2' shoulders, as well as curb and gutter work. (The existing lane width is
10' with little to no shoulder room and deep roadside ditches.)
This work will require a full closure of Branch Hill-Guinea Road between Branch Hill-Loveland Road and Branch Hill
Miamiville Road. A detour will be in place that directs traffic from Branch Hill-Guinea Road to Wards Corner Road to I
275 to Loveland-Madeira Road. [See attached map.]
- Start date: Wednesday, April 6, 2016
- Expected completion: Tuesday, May 10, 2016
In addition to the above projects, there will be two additional pieces of work completed this summer that will improve safety and travel in this area:
Resurfacing work will occur on Branch Hill-Guinea Road from the Hamilton County line to Branch Hill-Miamiville Road.
On Branch Hill-Loveland Road, resurfacing work will take place from Branch Hill-Guinea to the Loveland city limit.
Short-term closures will be necessary on both roads, and more information will be provided as each project approaches and more details are coordinated with local officials regarding the timing and detour patterns for both.
