Map of Woodman Drive Detour

  • The Montgomery County Engineer’s Office is reconstructing the deteriorating bridge on Woodman Drive over the Little Beaver Creek, between Wilmington Pike and East Stroop Road.
  • The contractor is anticipating closing Woodman Drive from Wilmington Pike to Stroop Road the week of September 4, 2018.
  • A Detour will be in place during the duration of the construction.
  • Construction is expected to be complete in November, 2018.
  • The reconstruction of this bridge will require a complete impassable closure of the section of Woodman Drive between Wilmington Pike and East Stroop Road.
  • Woodman Drive will be closed to through traffic in both directions between Wilmington Pike and East Stroop Road.
  • Once the bridge is replaced, Woodman Drive will return to two lanes of traffic in each direction.
  • City and county officials are asking motorists to be alert for the start of construction and necessary traffic control measures late this summer.
  • The established detour will use Wilmington Pike and East Stroop Road. Drivers who frequently use this section of Woodman Drive are being asked to plan alternate routes.
  • The Kettering Police Department is aware of this project and will be monitoring the adjacent neighborhood for traffic impact.
