Mason-Morrow-Millgrove Road Closure Update – May 11, 2017

Mason-Morrow-Millgrove Road between Shawhan Road and Stubbs Mill Road in Union Township is closed due to streambank erosion where the road runs alongside the Little Miami State and National Scenic River. The closure is temporary. The riverbank supporting the road is being monitored and it appears that the constant high water of the Little Miami River is weakening the bank, with danger of the road falling into the river. Leaving the road open in the interim is not an option.

This office is committed to reopening the road as efficiently as possible. Currently we are working with the property owners on relocating the road away from the river. Also, a road relocation plan is being prepared for review by Ohio Department of Natural Resources who has permitting authority for public infrastructure within 1,000 feet of the scenic river. Once design is approved, right of way is acquired and utilities are moved, construction will begin. Our goal is to begin construction by late summer/early fall.

Strout Road Bridge Closure Over Little Miami River

Full Closure | Detour posted

Starting on Monday, March 6, 2017, Strout Road Bridge (#207-0.02) over the Little Miami River will be closed until the scheduled bridge rehabilitation project can be completed in the fall of 2018. The early closure prior to construction is due to the rapidly deteriorating condition of the bridge. The bridge was previously posted for load limits under the Ohio truck legal limits on March 8, 2016. During the summer of 2014 the Warren County Engineer’s Office applied for and received State funding for the bridge rehabilitation project. Since the project is receiving State funds, the Ohio Department of Transportation programmed the project and scheduled construction for 2019. Recently the Engineer’s Office was able to work with the Ohio Department of Transportation and move the construction bid date up to December of 2017, with construction expected to begin in April of 2018.

The closure will be between the Mason-Morrow-Millgrove Road and Gilmour Road intersection and Woodward Claypool Road. The detour for the closure will utilize Mason-Morrow-Millgrove Road, SR 123, US 22/SR 3, and Middleboro Road.
