Road Closing August 12
Milford Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that the Frazee Road bridge over Williams Run will be replaced beginning August 12, 2013. Located in northern Milford Township, the current bridge is a single-span concrete slab built in 1920. The Engineer's Office plans to replace the old bridge with a new, safer pre-stressed concrete box beam structure.

A construction contract for the project will be awarded to DDK Construction, Inc. of Cincinnati which submitted a low bid of $393,330. Funding consists of State OPWC grant money and local BCEO matching funds.

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

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

Frazee Road will close ten feet northeast of the Baker Road intersection and 0.5 mile west of U.S. 127 for the bridge replacement beginning Monday, August 12, 2013. The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of October 28, 2013.

During this closure, local access 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: Eastbound Frazee Road traffic will detour southeast on Baker Road, east on Somerville Road, and north on U.S. 127. Westbound 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.
