WAR Reading Rd. / US 42 IORY
Grade Crossing Surface Replacement Project
The Ohio Rail Development Commission, in partnership with the City of Mason and the Indiana & Ohio Railway, is proposing the reconstruction of the railroad grade crossing at the intersection of Reading Road (US Route 42) and Tylersville Road in the City of Mason. The project will replace the existing, deteriorated grade crossing surface with a new concrete surface for the benefit of the traveling public.
To facilitate the construction of the new grade crossing surface, the intersection of Reading Road and Tylersville Road will be closed to through traffic for 5-10 days. The posted detour will utilize Western Row Road and Mason-Montgomery Road. Turning traffic as shown on the attached map will be maintained throughout construction.
Additionally, the multi-use path through the intersection, which is a part of the Mason Bike Path network, will be closed to users for the duration of construction. The posted pedestrian and bicycle detour will utilize multi-use paths on Snider Road, Mason Road, W. Main Street and Reading Road. The project is anticipated to have a de minimis impact on parks and recreational properties.
No regulated floodplains will be impacted by the project. All improvements will take place on existing railroad and city right-of-way and no deep excavation is required. No streams or wetlands are within the project area and no trees will be removed. ORDC environmental staff accessed the SHPO GIS database on February 10, 2021 and in accordance with Appendix A of the Section 106 Programmatic Agreement executed November 8, 2017, the project will not impact historic properties or historic districts.
Construction is anticipated to begin during the summer of 2021.
