Construction : Christman Road Bridge over Nimisila Reservoir Bridge Replacement Project
Jan 17, 2023
04-01-2023 - 12-17-2023
This project replaces the structurally deficient, load posted, simple span prestressed concrete box beam structure over Nimisila Reservoir with an entire new structure. The City of Green is partnering with the County on this project and the new bridge will include a 12 feet wide multi-purpose walkway to integrate with a planned trail in Green. SCE applied for and received 100% funding in Local Bridge Replacement Program funds programmed through the County Engineer's Association of Ohio. The City of Green and Summit County Engineer's office will split the local design costs.
The bridge is currently closed due to rapid deterioration. We have asked for the design work to be expediated to get this project under construction as soon as possible. SCE has entered into agreements with the Ohio Department of Transportation in order to receive the federal funding and with the City of Green outlining the cost share of the project. Due to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, this project will now be 100% funded with federal funds.
The bridge project has been out to bid and bids have been received. We are currently checking contractor references and will soon submit the contract for approval from Summit County Council. Construction is anticipated to begin in spring 2023.
