North Bend Road bridge lane closure scheduled
Hamilton County (Friday, April 15, 2016) – Replacement of the North Bend Road bridge over Interstate 74 requires the following lane closure beginning Wednesday, April 20.
Crews will be closing the right lane of northbound North Bend Road over Interstate 74 during the day on Wednesday. Once in place, this traffic pattern will remain for approximately one month, with all work dependent on weather.
Closure limits are south of the exit ramp from eastbound I-74 to North Bend Road to south of the entrance ramp to westbound I-74 from North Bend Road.
Traffic will be maintained and access will be provided to the I-74 ramps and adjacent properties. 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.
Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the work zone and lane closure.
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.
