On Monday, February 27, 2012,
weather dependent, East Ash Street between Spring Street and the
Great Miami River Bridge will be closed to thru traffic as part
of the E. Ash Street (US 36) Reconstruction Project. The Ohio
Department of Transportation (ODOT) has authorized a contract to
Double Jay Construction Inc. out of Englewood, Ohio in the
amount of $2,044,000 to perform this work.
The E. Ash Street Reconstruction
Project consists of the excavation and widening of the existing
street material and placement of new street base, storm sewer,
sanitary sewer, water mains, new fire hydrants, water service
work, concrete curb & gutter, new asphalt surface and new
concrete sidewalk. The project limits are from Spring Street to
the Great Miami River Bridge. The anticipated completion date
for this work is the end of September 2012.
ODOT has established an official
detour for all through traffic which will be posted utilizing
I-75 to County Road 25-A to North Street to Spring Street. While
the Contractor will work to maintain access to local residents
throughout the duration of the project, at various times during
the construction process access to properties and the drive
approaches located within the work limits may be impassable.
Side street access by which locals will be required to use to
access E. Ash Street will vary throughout the project depending
on where the contractor is working.
Motorists are asked to proceed
with caution by using the posted detour.
