Nick McWilliams reporting – The Ohio Department of Transportation will shut down State Route 542 on Monday to start a bridge replacement.

Just north of Dellroy, SR 542 will close for an estimated 150 days for bridge replacement work, where the road goes over Atwood Lake.

The detour route will take drivers to SR 183, 800, 212, and back to 542.

The route will be completely closed for all traffic while crews remove the old bridge.

A completion date, weather permitting, is June 30th of next year, and for updates on the project as well as live traffic alerts, visit
