The Hamilton County Engineer Theodore B. Hubbard would like to announce that the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is replacing the North Bend Road bridge over I-74 as part of an I-74 Rehabilitation Project. Construction is scheduled to commence on April 18, 2016.
The work is being performed by Sunesis Construction Company, and is anticipated to last until the fall of 2017.
Traffic will be maintained during construction.
The contractor will need to occupy one of the northbound lanes beginning with the initial Phase 1A work leaving a single lane for northbound traffic across the North Bend Road Bridge providing access to the I-74 ramps and adjacent properties. The southbound lanes will remain open during this initial Phase 1A work. Tentative completion of the project is scheduled for August 2017.
The travelling public should expect long delays in the area and make use of alternate routes is possible. 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.
Problems or questions should be directed to the Ohio Dept of Transportation, District 8 Communications Manager Brian Cunningham at 513-933-6517 or email at D08PIO@dot.ohio.gov
