Did you know that in addition to our City of Kettering Facebook page and Twitter posts the City of Kettering uses a system called Code Red to notify our residents of emergency incidents and critical community alerts?
When you enroll in Code Red, you may opt to receive alerts on your home or cell phone, by email and by text.  Please note that because of the emergency nature of some alerts, notices may be received at all hours.  Should you wish, you can easily decide later to opt out from receiving future alerts 

Please be aware that if you opt out, you will not receive any future notifications including communication about interruptions in service or news that is relevant to you.

The City of Kettering and the Montgomery County Engineer are partnering to replace the deteriorating bridge on East Stroop Road over the Little Beaver Creek, between Robertann Drive and Pobst Drive.
Closure of Stroop Road will begin on September 14, 2017 and will remain closed through the end of the year.
The replacement of this bridge will require a complete impassable closure of the section of Stroop Road between Robertann Drive and Pobst Drive.  Stroop Road will be closed to through traffic in both directions between Woodman Drive and Glenheath/Braddock. The good news is that once the bridge is replaced Stroop Road will return to two lanes of traffic in each direction.
City and county officials are asking motorists to be alert for the start of construction and necessary traffic control measures.  The established detour will use Dorothy Lane and Woodman Drive and drivers who frequently use this section of Stroop Road are being asked to plan alternate routes.  Detour signs will be posted early next week. 
Many popular destinations lie in the vicinity of the Stroop Road closure.  City officials assure that access to both Rosewood Arts Centre, Indian Riffle Park, the Kettering schools located on Glengarry Drive and the Kettering Recreation Complex will be maintained during the bridge replacement project.  Visitors to these locations should plan to use Dorothy Lane to reach Stroop Road east of the planned road closure. Motorists driving east on Stroop Road from Wilmington Pike or Woodman Drive will encounter the complete closure of the roadway and will not be able to access entryways to these destinations without using the recommended detour.
The main detour for through traffic along Stroop Road will be along Woodman Drive and East Dorothy Lane. This detour will be in place from the first day of construction this week through the end of the year.
The Kettering Police Department is aware of this project and will be monitoring neighborhoods surrounding the road closure and detour for traffic impact. We encourage anyone with traffic concerns as a result of this project to please contact the Police Department directly so that we can do our best to address any neighborhood impacts.
The City of Kettering and the Montgomery County Engineer appreciate your patience as this project is completed.
