Portsmouth Bypass
DBFOM Procurement

Portsmouth Bypass
The Portsmouth Bypass is a four-lane, divided, limited-access highway around the City of Portsmouth in Scioto County, Ohio. The highway, to be designated State Route 823 (SR 823), is known as the Portsmouth Bypass and will comprise 16 miles of four lane divided highway, bypassing approximately 26 miles of US 52 and US 23 through Portsmouth.
 
The project will improve travel and regional mobility, avoiding significant numbers of traffic signals, intersections, and driveways over the current 26 mile route using US 52 and US 23. The proposed 16-mile new route is estimated to provide travel time savings of up to 16 minutes per trip over the current route using US 23 and US 52. The large number of access points and traffic signals currently compromise US 23/US 52’s ability to safely and efficiently serve its intended function of a primary arterial.
