Heathcliff Bridge Project Underway
Montgomery County, in conjunction with the Ohio Department of Transportation, is rehabilitating the existing Heathcliff Bridge over the Stillwater River in the City of Clayton/Butler Township in 2015. The existing bridge carries approximately 5,400 vehicles a day, is structurally deficient, and is nearing the end of its serviceable life. The rehabilitation will replace a four span steel beam bridge that was built in 1968 with a four span plate girder bridge on new abutments and rehabilitated piers. The four span bridge will be 328 feet long and 28 feet wide.
Heathcliff Road closed to traffic on Monday, March 23, 2015 for construction, and a detour is in place. The closure of the Heathcliff Road bridge for rehabilitation is estimated to be 120 days, weather permitting, with an anticipated re-opening of July 21, 2015. The detour for Heathcliff Road is SR48 to Dog Leg Road to Frederick Pike to Meeker Road.
Construction on the I-70 bridge over Meeker Road is underway by ODOT as well, however detours have been coordinated to have the least impact on the traveling public.
Meeker Road under I-70 is closed February 9th through September 30st. The official detour is: Little York Road to Frederick Pike to Meeker Road. *Aullwood Drive will be closed to through traffic from US 40 at Meeker Road. Meeker Road will be closed to through traffic between Frederick Pike and I-70 and between Little York Road and I-70. For additional information on the I70/Meeker Road closure, you can contact ODOT at 937-314-2054.
