Stroop Road Bridge
June 23, 2017: Construction to relocate a water main on the north side of Stroop Road is planned to continue through June 30. One lane in each direction will be open to traffic, but shifts should be expected. Consider an alternate route during peak traffic hours.
In 2016, the City of Kettering completed a repaving project on the portion of Stroop Road between Shroyer Road and Dorothy Lane. During the project, existing deterioration in the beams of the bridge on Stroop Road, approximately 1,600 feet east of Woodman Drive, was exposed and in several areas the milling further compromised the integrity of the bridge.
The Montgomery County Engineer owns the bridge, and has determined that temporary safety measures must be put in place until the bridge can be replaced. These measures include reducing traffic to one lane in each direction along Stroop Road, and a 15 ton maximum weight restriction for vehicles traveling over the bridge. The bridge will be repaired this year.
In the coming months please be alert for the start of construction and necessary traffic control measures. We do anticipate that this section of Stroop Road will be closed entirely for portions of the project. Please watch our website, monthly Starter e-newsletter and social media accounts for the most up to date information on the project timeline and traffic impacts.
