Update: Road closure

County Road 31 (Bellville-Johnson Road), between Ritter Road and Mann Road, is closed for a bridge replacement project.

The detour route for westbound motorists is CR 31 to State Route 97, northwest on SR 97 to Mock Road, west on Mock Road to State Route 546, south on SR 546 to CR 31, and reverse for eastbound motorists. The road is expected to reopen September 12, 2015.

This bridge will be replaced as part of the Ohio Department of Transportation’s expanded Local Bridge Partnership Program. Beginning in late 2013, the program provides $120 million to local governments to make bridges safer for the motoring public. The investment will repair or replace more than 230 county and city-owned bridges over a three year period ending in 2016.
