Road Closing July 9
West Chester Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that the Rialto Road bridge over Mill Creek will be replaced beginning July 9. Located in West Chester Township just south of the West Chester Road / Beckett Road intersection, the current bridge is a steel pony truss built in 1956. The Engineer's Office plans to replace the old bridge with a new, safer pre-cast concrete arch structure.

A construction contract for the project was awarded to Ford Development Corp. of Cincinnati which submitted a low bid of $516,085. Funding will consist of State OPWC grant money and local BCEO matching funds.

All work is scheduled for completion by mid-October, weather permitting.

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

Rialto Road will close 0.3 mile northeast of Port Union Rialto Road and 0.2 mile southwest of West Chester Road for the bridge replacement beginning Monday, July 9, 2012. The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of October 8, 2012.

During this closure, local access to Rialto Road will be maintained for residents, businesses, and emergency vehicles from either side of the bridge, depending upon one's location, but motorists will not be permitted to pass through the construction zone and detours will be posted for all thru traffic.

Detour: Northeastbound Rialto Road traffic will detour north on Ohio 747, east on Union Centre Boulevard, and south on Beckett Road. Southwestbound 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.
