Woodman Drive Bridge Replacement – South of Stroop Road

Status Update:

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.

Project Description:

The City of Kettering and the Montgomery County Engineer are partnering to replace the deteriorating bridge on Woodman Drive over the Little Beaver Creek, between Wilmington Pike and Stroop Road.

The replacement of this bridge will require a complete impassable closure of the section of Woodman Drive between Wilmington Pike and Stroop Road.  Woodman Drive will be closed to through traffic in both directions between Wilmington Pike and Stroop Road. The good news is that 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 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 neighborhoods surrounding the road closure and detour for traffic impact.  We encourage anyone with traffic concerns as a result of this project to please contact the Police Department directly so that we can do our best to address any neighborhood impacts.

The City of Kettering and the Montgomery County Engineer appreciate your patience as this project is completed.  If you have any questions or concerns about the project, feel free to contact the Kettering City Manager’s Office at 296-2412.
