Road Closing April 24
Update April 21: Closing rescheduled for May 1
Madison Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that a bridge on Browns Run Road will be replaced beginning May 1. Located in northern Madison Township, the existing bridge, which spans Browns Run, is a steel beam bridge with metal deck built in 1978. 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 has been awarded to Brumbaugh Construction, Inc. of Arcanum, Ohio which submitted a low bid of $364,675. Funding consists of 100 percent local BCEO funds.

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

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

Browns Run Road will close 1.0 mile north of Myers Road and ten feet south of Hetzler Road for the bridge replacement beginning Monday, May 1, 2017.

The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of June 26, 2017.

During this closure, local access will be maintained for residents, businesses, and emergency vehicles from the south side of the bridge. Motorists will not be permitted to pass through the construction zone and detours will be posted for all thru traffic.

Detour: Northbound Browns Run Road traffic will detour east on Myers Road, north on Middletown Germantown Road, west on Keister Road, and southwest on Hetzler 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.
