NORTH B STREET BRIDGE REPLACEMENT BEGINS NEXT WEEK
Road Closing July 6
City of Hamilton / St. Clair Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that a bridge replacement on North B Street will get under way beginning July 6, 2010. Located between Gordon Avenue (just north of Black Street) and Lagonda Avenue in the City of Hamilton, the existing North B Street Bridge #01.542, which spans Two Mile Creek, is a steel beam structure with a 65-foot span built in 1907 and rehabilitated in 1940. It will be replaced by a new, wider pre-stressed concrete I-beam bridge.

A construction contract for the project was awarded to Armstrong Steel Erectors, Inc., of Newark, Ohio which submitted a low bid of $1,440,209. Funding will consist of State OPWC money, local Butler County funds, and local City of Hamilton funds.

All work is scheduled for completion by late November 2010, weather permitting.

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

North B Street will close five feet north of Gordon Avenue and 400 feet south of Lagonda Avenue for the bridge replacement beginning Tuesday, July 6, 2010. The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of November 22, 2010.

During this closure, local access to North B Street will be maintained for residents and businesses from either the north or south side of the bridge, depending upon your location, but detours will be posted for all thru traffic. Nearby Combs Park will also be closed during the course of bridge construction.

While the bridge is closed, local automobile traffic will be detoured as follows:

Northbound North B Street traffic will detour west on Rhea Avenue, north on Prytania Avenue, west on Haldimand Avenue, north on Cleveland Avenue, and east on Washington Boulevard. Southbound traffic will detour west on Washington Boulevard, south on Cleveland Avenue, and east on Rhea Avenue.

Truck traffic will be required to use a slightly different route:

Northbound North B Street truck traffic will detour west on Rhea Avenue, north on Eaton Avenue, and east on Washington Boulevard. Southbound truck traffic will reverse this route.

All traffic coming into the City of Hamilton from U.S. 127 and points north are encouraged to stay on U.S. 127 and not utilize Seven Mile Avenue and North B Street through the Village of New Miami.

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.
