Interstate 74 lane closure this weekend for bridge work
Hamilton County (Thursday, Aug. 16, 2012) – Bridge work is requiring a lane closure on eastbound Interstate 74 this weekend.
One lane of eastbound I-74 over Dry Fork Creek will be maintained from 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17 to 6 a.m. Monday, Aug. 20. Work will consist of performing a bridge overlay on the eastbound I-74 structure.
This work is part of a project to rehabilitate four I-74 bridges, including the bridge over Dry Fork Road, the bridge over Morgan Road and the bridge over Harrison Road.
Work on each bridge will consist of hydro-demolition of each bridge's existing decks, placement of a new concrete overlay on each bridge and painting of structural steel on each.
Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming work zone and bridge closures.
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.
