US Highway 65 To Close At Grand River Bridge August 12th.
US 65, south of Chillicothe, will be closed for a few days starting August 12th. The bridge deck replacement project, led by contractors from Radmacher Brothers Excavating Co. is at the point they are ready to pour the deck on the half of the bridge that has been closed since early March.
Crews will close US 65 at the Grand River Bridge on Wednesday, August 12th at 1:00 am. Emergency vehicles ONLY will be permitted to cross the bridge beginning the morning of August 13th. Non-emergency traffic will be permitted to resume use of the bridge on the afternoon of August 15th.
The extended closure for non-emergency traffic is to allow the concrete on the new driving surface to completely cure. When the bridge reopens, it will again be open to only one lane, with the 11.5-foot width restriction in place.
A signed detour will be in place from August 12th through the 15th, directing motorists over US 36, Route C, and Route Z.
The timing of the project is weather dependent.
