Moving into the next phase of construction for a bridge rehabilitation project on Tylersville Road over Interstate 75, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will begin deck work on the bridge, and the Tylersville Road bridge will be closed for up to two weeks.
On Sunday, October 11, the Tylersville Road bridge over I-75 will be closed at 8:00 p.m., and the closure will be in effect through Sunday, October 25. The two-week closure will allow crews to complete the bridge overlay under full-width construction.
Once the overlay work is complete, the bridge will be reopened to traffic, and crews will continue working to install permanent vandal fence. Traffic will be maintained with single-lane closures in effect as needed, and the bridge will be fully open to all six lanes by early November.
Although motorists will not be able to cross the bridge, the interchange ramps will remain open, and eastbound Tylersville Road traffic will be detoured via I-75 South and the Cin-Day Road interchange to I-75 North and the Tylersville Road exit. Westbound traffic will be detoured by way of I-75 North and the Liberty Way interchange to I-75 South and the Tylersville exit.
Complete General Construction was awarded a contract for approximately $2 million to complete the project, which includes repairing the substructure, replacing the parapet walls and fencing, and resurfacing the deck, and all work is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2021.
To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone. Remember, move over or slow down.
