As a preservation project to rehabilitate the Ironton-Russell Bridge gets under way, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation enacted daytime closure of the bridge beginning Aug. 11.

“Although there will be a significant impact to motorists who use this bridge during the day, we have coordinated the contractor’s schedule to limit the periods of closure and minimize the impact as much as possible,” said ODOT District 9 Deputy Director James Brushart.

In addition, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet began a waterproofing project at the 12th Street (southbound) bridge to Ashland, which required the bridge be reduced to one lane.

“We have been in communication with officials from KTC, and although both projects will take place simultaneously, it is necessary that they continue according to their respective schedules,” said Brushart. “Moreover, the construction and traffic departments from both agencies will be monitoring the situation to adjust timing and traffic patterns as needed.”

Armstrong Steel Erectors of Newark, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $1.1 million to complete the Ironton-Russell Bridge preservation project, and the scheduled completion date is Oct. 31.
