Road Closing April 6 (revised from March 30)
Reily Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that the Hart Road bridge just north of Ohio 129 will be replaced beginning Monday, April 6, 2015. The existing bridge is a single span cast-in-place concrete slab built in 1938. The Engineer's Office plans to replace the old bridge with a new pre-cast concrete box structure.

A construction contract for the project has been awarded to W.G. Stang, LLC, of Hamilton which submitted a low bid of $361,756. Funding consists of State OPWC grant money and local BCEO matching funds.

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

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

Hart Road will close 500 feet north of Ohio 129 (Hamilton Scipio Road) and 0.9 mile south of Dunwoody Road for the bridge replacement beginning Monday, April 6, 2015. The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of July 27, 2015.

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 Hart Road traffic will detour east on Ohio 129, north on Ohio 732, and west on Dunwoody 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.
