Hamilton Township, Ohio – Trustee Marcus Shelton announced today that the Fosters Bridge over Little Miami River on US 22 / SR 3 is scheduled to close on June 7th for 50 days. The bridge is commonly known as the Viaduct Bridge.

Shelton said that this is the next phase of a dual bridge rehabilitation project where contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will be replacing the expansion joints, overlaying the bridge, patching the substructure, and upgrading the guardrail.

The project will require a full closure of U.S. 22 for up to 50 days. Currently, the closure is scheduled to go into effect on Monday, June 7.

While US 22 / SR 3 is closed, motorists will be detoured by way of Columbia Road, Western Row Road, I-71 and S.R. 48.

Due to anticipated increased traffic volumes on Old 3C Highway and other local routes, the left-turn movements at Socialville-Foster Road and Old 3C Highway and at Foster-Maineville Road and Old 3C will be prohibited.

In addition, the Loveland Bike Trail (Little Miami Scenic Trail) will be closed where it crosses Old 3C Highway, although the trail will be open to the north and to the south of Old 3C.

Shelton said, “These changes are being implemented to ensure safety and minimize the overall impact to motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists.Motorists are encouraged to select alternate routes whenever possible, as they may experience traffic backups and significant delays, especially when traveling during peak travel times in the vicinity of the U.S. 22/3 bridge over the Little Miami River and in the Landen and Maineville areas.”
