Mad River Road in Washington Township to Reopen!

Paul Gruner, P.E., P.S., Montgomery County Engineer, wishes to announce that the bridge replacement project on Mad River Road is nearing completion, and the road will be reopened.

The project required closing Mad River Road to through traffic between Whipp Road and Rahn Road on Monday, June 11, 2012. The contract schedule for completion of the project was November 15, 2012, due to uncertainties as to how quickly utility companies would schedule and complete their work. The work generally went well, the project is far ahead of schedule, and Mad River Road will be reopened to all traffic on Monday, September 24, 2012.

This work is somewhat weather dependent, and updates will be communicated as necessary. The contractor is still waiting on delivery of materials for hand railings, and these will be installed at a later date when the materials arrive. In the meantime, temporary fence will be in place.

The patience shown by the traveling public and the residents in the vicinity of the project during this time is greatly appreciated.

Please contact Paul Gruner at 937.225.6040 (office), 937.422.4399 (cell), or via email at if you have any questions.
