Joseph Litvin, P.E., P.S., Montgomery County Engineer, wishes to announce the start of the repair contract and associated traffic restrictions for the West Third Street Bridge over the Great Miami River.
The Barrett Paving Company, under contract with Montgomery County, will begin construction on a repair contract on the West Third Street Bridge on Monday, March 7, 2011, weather-permitting, with a completion date of June 30, 2011.
The repair work will include rebuilding the end joints and their supporting structures, patching various areas of the concrete deck, and patching the concrete sidewalks. In order to accomplish this work, it will be necessary to close one side of the bridge at a time. The first phase work will be in the westbound lanes, and westbound traffic will be shifted to the south side of the bridge using one of the existing eastbound lanes. Therefore, there will be only one lane of traffic in each direction. In addition, trucks will not be permitted to turn right from southbound Roberts Drive onto westbound West Third Street. The Montgomery County Engineer will be attempting to secure funding for a complete replacement of the concrete deck in future years.
This work is somewhat weather dependent, and updates will be communicated as necessary.
The patience of the public and their careful, safe driving during these operations is greatly appreciated.
