Montgomery County is rehabilitating the existing Alex Bell Bridge over the Holes Creek in Washington Township.
The existing bridge carries approximately 12,700 vehicles a day, and the three-span non-composite adjacent box beam superstructure has reached the end of its serviceable life.
The proposed structure is a three-span prestressed concrete spread box beam bridge with a composite concrete deck on modified existing abutments and piers. The three-span bridge will be 118 feet long.
Alex Bell Road will be closed to traffic during construction, and a detour will be in place. The closing is to start Tuesday, September 5, 2017, and the reopening to traffic will be by November 30, 2017, weather permitting.
The westbound detour for the project is Paragon Road to Miamisburg-Centerville Rd (SR725) to Yankee Street to Mad River Rd.
The eastbound detour for the project is Mad River Road to Whipp Road to Far Hills Avenue.
Bids were taken for the project on July 19, 2017, and the contract was awarded to Brumbaugh Construction, Inc. of Arcanum, Ohio on August 8, 2017, for $703,442.00. State/Federal funds and Ohio Public Works Commission funds were secured for the construction of the project.
