CONTRACT AWARDED FOR THREE BRIDGE REPLACEMENTS

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that a contract for three bridge replacements gets under way this week as crews begin work on Howe Road in Madison Township. Located just west of Eck Road, an old steel-beam bridge built in 1928 will be replaced with a new pre-cast concrete slab beam structure. The project is expected to be completed in July. Also slated for replacement are bridges on Schradin Road in Morgan Township and Stahlheber Road in Hanover Township.

A contract for all three projects was awarded to SK Construction of Middletown which submitted a low bid of $815,204. All work is scheduled for completion by this fall. The bridges will be replaced utilizing funds from the State's OPWC (Ohio Public Works Commission) Issue 2 grant program, which will cover 65 percent of the cost. The remaining local match amount will consist of BCEO money.

The Engineer's Office has scheduled a total of 11 bridge replacements for 2004 utilizing several different funding sources, including Federal LBR funds as well as local Force Account money. For a complete overview of this year's proposed capital improvements, please see the BCEO's 2004 Capital Improvements Report or the Current Projects page here on our web site.
