HAMILTON, Ohio - Winter weather that refuses to leave the Tri-State is causing frustrating delays for road crews in Butler County.
Engineers told 9 On Your Side reporter Mekialaya White they know March can be dicey when it comes to weather, so they did plan for potential delays.
"The weather is unpredictable this time of the year," Butler County engineer Greg Wilkens said Tuesday. "It's unusual [it snowed]. But if it's not snow it's rain. So we just gotta keep a schedule that'd flexible."
Drivers should be aware engineers were planning on closing a stretch of Miliken Road from Judith Drive to Beaty Lane to begin working on replacing two culverts, but officials say the snow is causing delays in getting the construction project started.
Officials also say the fortunate warmer weather last year led crews to get an early start on construction. With the weather this year, they took extra precaution.
If everything goes according to plan, officials hope to have crews working on the project starting Wednesday, and the stretch of Miliken will be closed again.
Officials said they don't expect the full construction season to begin until April 1.
