Road Closing March 19
Madison Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that the Myers Road bridge over Browns Run in Madison Township will be replaced beginning March 19. The existing bridge is a steel pony truss built in 1962. 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 R.B. Jergens Construction, Inc. of Vandalia, Ohio which submitted a low bid of $758,813. Funding consists of 100 percent federal grant money.

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

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

Myers Road will close ten feet east of Browns Run Road and 1.6 miles west of Middletown Germantown Road for the bridge replacement beginning Monday, March 19, 2018. The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of June 4, 2018.

During this closure, local access will be maintained for residents, businesses, and emergency vehicles from the east 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: Eastbound Myers Road traffic will detour north on Browns Run Road, northeast on Hetzler Road, east on Keister Road, and south on Middletown Germantown Road to Myers. 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.
