Lane Closures Scheduled for Monmouth Street Overpass Work
HAMILTON COUNTY (Thursday, July1, 2010) - Lane closures for next week to accommodate work to reconstruct the Monmouth Street overpass at Interstate 75 are as follows:
The left two lanes of north and southbound I-75 and the Bates entrance ramp will close to traffic beginning at midnight Monday, July 5, reopening to traffic at 5 a.m. Tuesday, July 6.
The right lane of southbound Central Parkway will close at 7 a.m. to permit construction to begin on the new Monmouth-Central Parkway intersection. This lane will remain closed for the duration of the work.
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.
