Lane Closures Scheduled for I-75/Monmouth Street Overpass Work

 

 HAMILTON COUNTY  (Thursday, April 15, 2010)  - Lane closures for next week to accommodate work to reconstruct

the Monmouth Street overpass at Interstate 75 are as follows:

 

Monday, April 19:       Right two lanes northbound I-75, closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

                                       Ramp from Bates Avenue to westbound I-74, closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

 

Tuesday, April 20:     Left two lanes of north and southbound I-75 from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

 

Wednesday, April 21:   Right two lanes of southbound I-75 from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

This work at the I-75/Monmouth Street overpass is the start of the $664 million Interstate 75 Mill Creek Expressway Project, which will improve traffic flow and enhance safety of the I-75 corridor from the Western Hills Viaduct to north of the Paddock Road interchange in Hamilton County. Over the course of 10 years, construction will rehabilitate eight miles of existing lanes and construct an additional lane in each direction.

 

The Monmouth Street work will remove and reconstruct the overpass, and reconstruct and convert Monmouth to a local through street between Central Parkway and Colerain Avenue.  In addition, the Bates Avenue Bridge and the pedestrian bridge between Colerain Avenue and Central Parkway will be removed to clear overhead obstruction to future construction on I-75. Work on the new overpass is to be completed by Sept. 30, 2010, with completion of the entire phase scheduled for Aug. 31, 2011. The Great Lakes Construction Company was awarded the $7.192 million contract.
