Continued work on the U.S. 127 bridge rehabilitation project over Interstate 70 in Preble County will require overnight lane closures, according to an ODOT spokesperson.

There will be single-lane closures on both Eastbound and Westbound Interstate 70 under U.S. 127 starting tonight at 7 p.m. until 10 a.m. Friday morning.

ODOT contractors are rehabilitating the bridge that carries U.S. 127 over I-70 by replacing the bridge deck, raising the structure, and painting the structural steel, ODOT said.

The project is being done by the Complete General Construction Company, which was awarded a $4.9 million contract.

The first phase of the project is expected to be done by this fall and all work is scheduled to be completed by the summer of 2024.
