State Route 51 Elmore Bridge Update
BOWLING GREEN (Wednesday, December 16, 2015) - The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) announces that after public input, the State Route 51 bridge over the Portage River near the Village of Elmore will remain open to pedestrians during the upcoming resurfacing and bridge work project scheduled to start in the spring of 2016.
ODOT has redesigned the project and is planning to modify pavement markings and install a concrete barrier following the resurfacing of the roadway. This will allow the existing sidewalk to remain open on the bridge while repairs are performed.
Work includes bridge repairs on the State Route 51 bridge over the Portage River, resurfacing State Route 51 through the Village of Elmore to the Sandusky County Line, resurfacing State Route 105 through the Village of Pemberville, and resurfacing State Route 199 through the Village of West Millgrove.
The proposed paving will last approximately last 120 days. During this period, a minimum of one lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained at all times.
