During the closure, detour signs will direct southbound motorists right onto Old Ballard Road, which will be narrowed to one lane near the intersection, then left onto Owensville Road and out to Route 250. Northbound motorists will reverse the detour.
Access will be maintained to all residences and businesses, including Ivy Nursery, which is located just south of the bridge.
The purpose of this project is to replace the aged Route 677 (Broomley Road) bridge over the Buckingham-Branch Railroad tracks in Ivy. The existing bridge is deteriorated and has been posted with a 10-ton weight limit.
The Route 677 bridge over the Buckingham-Branch Railroad will be replaced with a single-span steel truss bridge. The new bridge will meet current design standards and will be capable of carrying all legal loads.
A 2011 count shows that 740 vehicles use Route 677 daily.
