Road Closing July 7
Liberty Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that the Mauds Hughes Road bridge over Gregory Creek will be replaced beginning July 7, 2014. The existing bridge is a steel pony truss built in 1963. The Engineer's Office plans to replace the old bridge with a new 3-span concrete slab structure on a modified alignment. As part of the project the roadway approaches to the bridge will be realigned to eliminate the sharp S-curves and a small hump in the road just north of the bridge will be removed.

A construction contract for the project has been awarded to the John R. Jurgensen Company of Cincinnati which submitted a low bid of $2,184,782. Funding consists of State OPWC grant money and local BCEO matching funds.

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

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

Mauds Hughes Road will close 0.6 mile north of Hamilton Mason Road and 0.5 mile south of Princeton Road for the bridge replacement beginning Monday, July 7, 2014. The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of November 10, 2014.

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: Northbound Mauds Hughes Road traffic will detour west on Hamilton Mason Road, north on LeSourdsville West Chester Road, and east on Princeton 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.
