ODOT plans to replace culverts along SR-60 and US-42 Ashland County, Ohio


 

Medina County (Monday, December 2, 2019)  This is an ODOT-let project located at two location in Ashland County, Ohio. They are as follows:

ASD-42-15.05

This project site is located along SR-60 approximately 1.2 miles north of the SR60 and US250 intersection in Clear Creek Township, Ashland County, Ohio.

The project consists of replacing a deficient 41-foot long concrete box culvert (CFN #:1803909) with a 95-foot long reinforced concrete elliptical pipe. Additionally, approximately 40 feet of rock channel protection at the inlet/outlet of the new structure and full height headwalls will be installed. The total permanent impact to the unnamed tributary to the Vermilion River will be approximately 135 LF. There is 0.027-acre of suitable wooded habitat (SWH) without roosting habitat for federally listed bat species located within the project study area that will be cleared during construction.

The project will require the permanent taking of right-of-way from adjacent parcels. No deep excavation will not be required for the proposed work. However, utilities will need to be relocated to complete the work associated with the project.

This project is federally, and state funded. The project will require a detour. The detour for SR-60 northbound traffic will be SR 6 northbound to US- 250 northbound to US-224 eastbound to SR-60-northbound. The SR-60 southbound detour will be the reverse of the SR-60 northbound detour. Construction is anticipated to begin in May 2021.

On November 22, 2019, district environmental staff accessed the SHPO GIS database, and in accordance with Appendix B of the Section 106 PA executed November 8, 2017, the project will not impact historic properties or historic districts.

The Department has initiated contact with emergency and other public services and will continue to coordinate with these services throughout construction.
