Road Closing February 13
Reily Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that the Garner Road bridge over Indian Creek will be replaced beginning February 13. Located in Reily Township just south of Reily Millville Road, the current bridge is a three-span rolled steel beam structure built in 1968. The Engineer's Office plans to replace the old bridge with a new, safer pre-stressed concrete box I-beam bridge.

A construction contract for the project was awarded to Brumbaugh Construction, Inc. of Arcanum, Ohio which submitted a low bid of $1,170,211. Funding will consist of State OPWC grant money and local BCEO matching funds.

All work is scheduled for completion by early August 2012, weather permitting.

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

Garner Road will close 1.1 miles north of Dunwoody Road and 0.1 mile south of Reily Millville Road (ten feet south of Huffman Road) for a bridge replacement over Indian Creek beginning Monday, February 13, 2012.

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 August 6, 2012.

Detour: Northbound Garner Road traffic will detour west on Ohio 129, north on Ohio 732, and southeast on Reily Millville 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.
