Traffic Advisory State Route 73

Bridge Rehab Project Set To Begin On S.R. 73

Warren County (Wednesday, February 14, 2024) – A bridge rehabilitation project on state Route 73 in Warren County is set to begin later this month, with restrictions going into effect February 26.

The project calls for replacing the bridge over Corwin Nixon Road and the Little Miami Scenic Trail, near the junction with Smith Road, as well as rehabilitating the bridge over the Little Miami River, located just east of the intersection with U.S. 42.

Construction will begin at the bridge over Corwin Nixon Road on Monday, February 26, and S.R. 73 will be reduced to one lane, with traffic maintained by temporary signals. Smith Road will be closed at its junction with S.R. 73, and traffic will be detoured by way of Clarksville and Corwin Nixon roads. The Little Miami Scenic Trail, however, will remain open to bicyclists and pedestrians.

A start date for construction at the bridge over the Little Miami River has yet to be determined, and although traffic will continue to be maintained throughout much of the project, S.R. 73 will be subject to closure for up to 10 days for the deck overlay.

The Double Z Construction Company was awarded a contract for approximately $4 million to complete the project, and all work is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2024.
