Monroe Street over the North Branch of Ten Mile Creek Bridge Rehabilitation Project

The City of Sylvania will begin bridge rehabilitation work on Monroe Street between Summit Street and River Crossings on June 1st.  The scope of work includes hydrodemolition of the bridge deck and sidewalks with a concrete overlay.  Also the outside parapet walls, hand railing, and guardrail will be removed and replaced and a new drip irrigation system will be installed for seasonal hanging flower baskets.

As a result of this work, Monroe Street will be closed to all traffic June 1st through June 15th.  A detour will be posted utilizing Main Street, Brint Road, and Harroun Road.

On June 16th the bridge will be reopened to vehicular traffic only with one lane in each direction for 5 weeks.  All lanes of traffic, and pedestrian sidewalks, are scheduled to be opened by July 21st.
