Butler County (Wednesday, May 18, 2016) – Work on U.S. 27 in the city of Oxford nears completion and traffic will be switched into its permanent configuration next Thursday, May 26.

There will also be a new traffic pattern shift at the Peffer Memorial Park bridge, as work on the sidewalk on the east side of the bridge continues.

The traffic signal at U.S. 27/Chestnut Street will be on “Flash” mode beginning Thursday, May 19 and will go into “Stop and Go” operation on May 26.
