Paul Gruner, P.E., P.S., Montgomery County Engineer, wishes to advise the public regarding a temporary closing at the Alex-Bell Pike Bridge Replacement project between Munger Road and W. Rahn Road.
In order to complete the final concrete deck pour for the project, it is necessary to close the bridge for a 24 hour period. This closing has been scheduled and cancelled several times due to adverse weather on the scheduled days. It has now been rescheduled again for Monday, October 3, 2011, and at this time the weather forecast looks very favorable. It is still weather dependent should the forecast change. The patience of the public and their careful, safe driving during these operations is greatly appreciated.
Alex-Bell Road will be closed between Munger Road and Rahn Road beginning Monday, October 3, 2011, at 7:00 PM, and lasting until 7:00 PM on Tuesday, October 4, 2011. A detour will be posted via Munger Road to Mad River Road back to Alex-Bell Road, and vice versa. Local traffic will be maintained to properties on Alex-Bell on each side of the bridge, but the bridge will be totally closed.
