Closure of Alex-Bell Road Bridge

Posted on Sep 5, 2017

The Alex Bell Road bridge between Mad River and McEwen roads is closed for replacement of the superstructure.

The Montgomery County Engineer's office estimates that the bridge will reopen to traffic by November 30. When the project is complete, the current 5-ton limit and load restriction will be removed, according to the Engineer's Office which is undertaking the project.

Information from the Montgomery County Engineer's Office

Montgomery County is rehabilitating the existing Alex Bell Bridge over the Holes Creek in Washington Township.

Existing Structure:

The existing bridge carries approximately 12,700 vehicles a day, and the three span non-composite adjacent box beam superstructure has reached the end of its serviceable life.

Proposed Structure:

The proposed structure is a three-span prestressed concrete spread box beam bridge with composite concrete deck on modified existing abutments and piers.  The three span bridge will be 118 feet long.


Alex Bell Road is closed to traffic during construction, and a detour is in place.  The bridge will reopen to traffic November 30, weather permitting.

The westbound detour for the project is Paragon Road to Miamisburg-Centerville Rd (SR725) to Yankee Street to Mad River Rd.

The eastbound detour for the project is Mad River Road to Whipp Road to Far Hills Avenue.


Bids were taken for the project on July 19, 2017, and the contract was awarded to Brumbaugh Construction, Inc. of Arcanum, Ohio on August 8, 2017 for $703,442.00.  State/Federal funds and Ohio Public Works Commission funds were secured for the construction of the project.
