Kinsey Road & St Rt 68 Construction Update

Construction Update

Vectren Corporation Gas Main Work at Intersection of North Detroit Street and Kinsey Road

Xenia, Ohio4/15/2014: Vectren and The City of Xenia regretfully report that it is necessary to immediately close northbound and southbound traffic through the intersection of N. Detroit Street and Kinsey Road. The closure is necessitated to insure the safety of motorists traversing the intersection due to unstable conditions around the excavated trench. All northbound N. Detroit Street traffic will be directed to turn right onto Kinsey Road to follow the posted detour routes while southbound N. Detroit Street traffic shall continue to follow the (current) posted detour route.

While Vectren and the City of Xenia believe that vehicular and school bus traffic can be safely maintained onto Kinsey Road while the intersection is closed, semi-truck traffic cannot. Signage will be posted that prohibits semi-truck traffic through the intersection. Semi-trucks shall follow the posted detour which includes US 42 through downtown Xenia toward Cedarville, onto SR 72 and Clifton Road.  Local businesses along N. Detroit Street may still receive deliveries but are asked to alert and direct their respective delivery trucks away from the intersection until further notice.

Vectren officials have pledged to work continuously through the day and night until the intersection can be restored to a safe condition to handle all types of vehicular traffic. Once semi-truck traffic may safely traverse the intersection, the public will be notified immediately.

While the City of Xenia recognizes the inconvenience and frustration that this project has caused to the public, the safety of all motorists must remain the top priority. Thank you.

X-Out Hunger Elvis Fundraiser

Faith Community Methodist Church and X-out Hunger; host this amazing impersonator to raise monies for our children in the Xenia community on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.


Donations accepted at the door.

Children need more than paper, pencils, and books to learn. If children are hungry, it hampers their ability to learn. Research indicates that even mildly malnourished children can experience negative impacts in growth, behavior, school performance, and cognitive development. 

Let’s work together to X-OUT Hunger!
