Lebanon (Friday, May 13, 2022) – Due to material delivery delays, closure of the bridge is now scheduled to start Tuesday, May 31.
Following preliminary site work earlier this year, a bridge repair project continues on state Route 122 over the Great Miami River in the city of Middletown, and a full closure of the bridge is scheduled to be imparted this month.
Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will close the bridge on S.R. 122 over the Great Miami River on the west side of Middletown. The bridge will be closed for 45 days beginning Tuesday, May 31, and separate detours for cars and trucks will be posted using Carmody Boulevard, Germantown Road and Trenton Franklin Road.
The entire project calls for rehabilitating the bridges that carry S.R. 122 over the river and the overflow channel by replacing the expansion joints, upgrading the barriers, painting structural steel and replacing bearings. Also during construction, debris will be removed from the main channel of the river.
The Eagle Bridge Company was awarded a contract for approximately $3 million to complete the project, and all work is scheduled to be completed by late fall of 2022.
