UPDATE

I-74/North Bend Road lane and ramp closures/traffic switch scheduled

 

Hamilton County (Monday, May 9, 2016) – Replacement of the North Bend Road bridge over Interstate 74 requires the following lane and ramp closures and a traffic switch this week.

Due to inclement weather, work originally scheduled for Tuesday has been moved to Friday, May 13.

Friday, May 13 – One lane will be maintained on north bound North Bend Road.  A lane closure will be in place on south bound North Bend Road from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m.

All lanes of traffic will be moved to the east side of North Bend Road bridge so work can begin on the west side of the bridge, which currently carries southbound North Bend Road traffic.

One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained on the east side of North Bend Road from north of Boomer Road to south of West Fork Road, with an approximate seven-foot shoulder provided on the west side of the eastern bridge in the event emergency vehicles need to get through the work zone. This traffic pattern will remain in effect until approximately the end of the year.

Saturday, May 14 – no lane closures will be necessary for the work being conducted.  

The travelling public should expect delays in the area. A local northbound alternate route has been posted by the Hamilton County Engineer’s Office from North Bend Road to Boomer Road to Race Road to West Fork Road to North Bend Road.

Highway advisory radio (HAR) 1700 AM is being used to provide notice of upcoming traffic pattern changes, interstate travel times, incident notification and a recommendation that local deliveries take place in off-peak hours. A citizens band announcement will also be broadcast to warn users to avoid the North Bend Road/I-74 interchange.

Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the work zone and the lane and ramp closures, and the traffic switch. 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.
