The Butler County Engineer’s Office reports the EMERGENCY CLOSURE of Baker Road at the bridge over Big Cave run, 0.6 miles feet northwest of Somerville Road and 0.13 miles southeast of Frazee Road, until further notice due to the quick deterioration of the bridge beams.
For this reason, the BCEO’s Baker Road Superstructure Replacement project, initially scheduled for the summer of 2024, has been moved to the early months of the year after yesterday’s bridge inspection and will be completed in the spring.
Detour: Northwest-bound Baker Road traffic will detour east on Somerville Road, north on U.S. 127, and west on Frazee Road. Southeast-bound traffic will reverse this route.
Motorists are encouraged to check the BCEO PROJECTS MAP, as well as Facebook and Twitter @bceonews, for possible date and status changes concerning this and other closures/advisories.
