The Montgomery County Engineer proposes to improve Lamme Road from Alex-Bell Road to Bushwick Drive (about 3000 feet) and Alex-Bell Road east of Lamme Road (about 500 feet) in Miami Township.  Improvements consist of the replacement of the bridge over Holes Creek, resurfacing the roadway, replacement of deteriorated sidewalk, and upgrade of the existing traffic signal.  The project is necessary to address deteriorated conditions and outdated features.  Pedestrian traffic at the bridge location will be maintained, but nearby bus stops will need to be closed during construction, due to the closure of the road to vehicle traffic at the bridge.
