TRENTON FRANKLIN ROAD BRIDGE REPLACEMENT
SCHEDULED FOR SEPTEMBER

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens announces that replacement of a major bridge on Trenton Franklin Road is slated to begin in early September. The existing bridge, which crosses Browns Run in Madison Township, is an aging two-span steel beam structure built in 1940. It will be replaced by a three-span, pre-stressed concrete box beam bridge that will be twelve feet wider.

"The new bridge will still carry two lanes of traffic, but those lanes will be wider and there will be full shoulders," Wilkens said. "Motorists and local residents will have a much safer bridge when the new structure is completed."

A contract for the project was awarded to SK Construction of Middletown which submitted a low bid of $737,883. Federal LPA funds were secured by the Butler County Engineer's Office to help pay for 80 percent of the project's cost. The remaining local match amount consists of BCEO funds.

Crews will start work on September 7 with completion scheduled for early January 2005. Since the bridge will be closed during construction, northeastbound Trenton Franklin Road traffic will detour east on Ohio 122, northeast on Carmody Boulevard, and north on Ohio 4. Southwestbound traffic will reverse this route.
