Lane Closures Scheduled Aug. 5 for Monmouth Work
HAMILTON COUNTY (Friday, July 30, 2010)
- Lane closures for next week to accommodate work to reconstruct the Monmouth Street overpass at Interstate 75 are as follows:
The right lane of northbound I-75 and the left lane of southbound I-75 will be closed to traffic at 7 p.m., with a second southbound lane to close beginning at 10 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 5. All lanes will reopen to traffic by 1 a.m. the following day. In addition, the Bates entrance ramp will be closed to traffic from 8 p.m. until 1 a.m.
This project is the start of work for 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.
