The Butler County Engineer’s Office reports that Elk Creek Road will close 0.7 miles south of West Alexandria Road and 0.7 miles north of S.R. 122 for a complete bridge replacement beginning Monday, January 23, 2023. The $2 million design-build project, initially scheduled for 2025, was accelerated to this year due to the poor condition of the existing bridge and newly available funding. After being closed for emergency repairs and modified for one-lane traffic, the BCEO is pleased to increase safety and longevity with the new bridge on Elk Creek Road for Madison Township motorists.
Brumbaugh Construction, Inc. will perform the construction, which is expected to last approximately five months. The road will be closed to all through traffic and is tentatively scheduled to reopen in late June 2023.
Detour: Northbound Elk Creek Road traffic will detour east/southeast on S.R. 122 and north/northwest on West Alexandria Road. Southbound traffic will reverse this route.
