Road Closing February 27
Morgan Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that a bridge rehabilitation on South Weaver Road is scheduled to begin on February 27. The Morgan Township bridge is a steel pony truss located just north of the Layhigh Road intersection. Rehabilitation plans call for replacing only the truss portion of the bridge with another steel pony truss. The existing substructure is in good condition and does not need to be replaced.

A construction contract for the project was awarded to U.S. Bridge of Cambridge, Ohio which submitted a low bid of $271,008. Funding will consist of 100 percent local BCEO money.

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

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

South Weaver Road will close ten feet north of Layhigh Road and 1.9 miles south of Ohio 129 for a bridge rehabilitation beginning Monday, February 27, 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 May 7, 2012.

Detour: Northbound South Weaver Road traffic will detour northwest on Ohio 126, north on California Road, and east on Ohio 129. 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.
