INDIAN CREEK ROAD BRIDGE TO BE REPLACED
ROAD CLOSING SEPTEMBER 17
Reily Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that a major bridge replacement on Indian Creek Road is slated to begin next Monday. Located just south of Imhoff Road in Reily Township, Indian Creek Road Bridge #01.360 is a narrow steel pony truss built in 1967 spanning Indian Creek. It will be replaced with a new single span post-tensioned bulb-T structure.

This is one of eight bridge replacements for the BCEO this year and is part of the County Engineer's ongoing and aggressive bridge safety program. "Repairing or replacing structurally deficient bridges has been a top priority of this office for a long time," Wilkens emphasized. "While Indian Creek Road may not be one of the more heavily traveled roads in Butler County, the safety of all motorists everywhere is of paramount importance whether the area is rural, urban, or suburban."

The construction contract for the project was awarded to Mainline Road and Bridge Construction, Inc. of Beavercreek, Ohio which submitted a low bid of $821,712. State OPWC funds will be utilized to pay for 78 percent of the construction cost. The remaining local match amount consists of local BCEO money.

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

Indian Creek Road in Reily Township will close for this bridge replacement beginning Monday, September 17, 2007. The road will be closed 1.3 miles north of Springfield Road and ten feet south of Imhoff Road.

Detours will be posted for all thru traffic but local access will be maintained for residents, businesses, and emergency vehicles only from the south side (Springfield Road). There will be no local access to Indian Creek Road from the north end of the project.

The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of January 21, 2008.

Detour: Northbound Indian Creek Road traffic will detour southeast on Springfield Road, north on Ohio 732, west on Stillwell Beckett Road, and south on Riggs Road. Southbound traffic will reverse this route.
