Plan Year:

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 reopened to traffic on 12/8/23**

Due to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, this project will now be 100% funded with federal funds.

The contract was awarded to Catts Construction and the pre-construction meeting was held on 4/6/23. The contractor has faced issues in the past with dewatering. Since remobilizing, piles have been driven, abutments have been poured, installation of the rock channel, the beems have been set, sheet piling removed, sleeper slabs have been completed and, concrete deck has been poured, and bridge has been paved.  Currently, the project is substantially completed with traffic open to the public. Remaining items needing work will be completed as weather permits throughout Spring.
