Lane Closures for Deck Scanning

Joseph Litvin, P.E., P.S., Montgomery County Engineer, wishes to update the public regarding the situation at the West Third Street Bridge over the Great Miami River.

As part of the ongoing monitoring of the West Third Street bridge deck, and in preparation for the work on the repair contract by Barrett Paving Company, the Montgomery County Engineer’s Office (MCEO) has hired Resource International, Inc. to perform a scan of the deck. This work will be done using specialized Ground Penetrating Radar equipment that will map the degree of deterioration throughout the deck.

This work will be performed on Tuesday, November 2, 2010, and will require the closing of each lane of the bridge for approximately 1 hour each beginning at 9:00 A.M. This will include the right-hand westbound lane, during which time the bridge will be closed for all westbound traffic. All work will be completed by 3:30 P.M. MCEO Operations Division Personnel will be installing traffic control signing, cones, and drums.

In addition, scanning will be performed on the Harshman Road Bridge over the Mad River in the City of Riverside and the Heathcliff Road Bridge in Butler Township on Wednesday, November 3, 2010, and Thursday, November 4, 2010. Individual lanes will be closed on those bridges also for approximately one hour each.

The patience of the public and their careful, safe driving during these operations is greatly appreciated.

They are responsible for the maintenance and construction of county roads and maintenance and construction of bridges on county roads, township roads, and certain streets within municipalities. They are also responsible for maintaining land surveying records, checking the accuracy and adequacy of recorded land transfer records, and establishing or re-establishing certain land survey monuments.
