A bridge replacement will close part of Lyons Road for several months, impacting traffic and causing detours in Miami and Washington townships. CONTRIBUTED
Slightly more than 19,000 vehicles on an average day use the bridge, which is posted for a 20-ton load limit, Gruner added.
“The bridge sits in neighboring Washington Twp., but many Miami Twp. residents use the route daily,” according to a post on Miami Twp.’s Facebook page.
The detour for westbound Lyons Road will be south along Yankee Street, west along Spring Valley Pike, and north along Washington Church Road, according to the county.
The detour for eastbound Lyons Road is north on Ohio 741, east on Ohio 725, and south along Yankee Street, officials said.
Businesses at the east end of the project — at the intersection of Lyons and Yankee — will be accessed from their Yankee Street entrances.
All other businesses along Lyons will be accessible from that road, according to the county.
An interactive map including detour routes and businesses in the area of the project is available at https://www.mcohio.org/government/elected_officials/engineer/projects.php. Periodic updates to the project will be available on the website as work on the bridge progresses, according to the county.
