Round Bottom Road Bridge Replacement

Project Scope:

The existing 225-foot bridge over the east fork of the Little Miami River just south of US Route 50 in Perintown will be replaced. The bridge is inspected routinely, along with all 419 bridges maintained by the county. Following recent inspections, it was determined that replacing the bridge would be more efficient than seeking to maintain it further.

Start of Construction:

Feb. 2021

Community Benefit:

The Round Bottom Road Bridge was originally built as a steel truss bridge in 1896. The last major rehabilitation of the bridge occurred in 1976 when the current concrete beams were installed. The existing walls that support these beams are original to the 1896 bridge. The replacement of the bridge is critical to maintaining the east-west connection between US Route 50 and Hamilton County.

Estimated Completion Date:

Nov. 2021

Estimated Construction Cost:
