Road Closing March 1
Ross Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that a bridge replacement on Black Road is slated to begin March 1. Located between Ross Hanover Road and Ross Estates Drive, Black Road Bridge #01.311 is a single span camelback pony truss with a 59-foot span built in 1958. It will be replaced by a new, wider concrete box beam structure.

A construction contract for the project was awarded to Eagle Bridge Company of Sidney, Ohio which submitted a low bid of $898,637. A combination of State OPWC and BCEO funds will be utilized to pay for the project.

All work is scheduled for completion by early June 2010, weather permitting.

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

Black Road will close 0.2 mile north of Ross Estates Drive and 0.3 mile south of Ross Hanover Road for this bridge replacement beginning Monday, March 1, 2010.

Detours will be posted for all thru traffic but local access will be maintained for residents, businesses, and emergency vehicles; however, local access will be limited to either the north or south side of the bridge project, depending upon one's location.

The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of June 1, 2010.

Detour: Northbound Black Road traffic will detour northeast on Hamilton New London Road and west on Ross Hanover Road. Southbound traffic will reverse this route.

Motorists are encouraged to check the Road Closings page here on the BCEO web site as the best source for possible date and status changes concerning this closure.
