Shelby County (Monday, October 1, 2012) – Lane closures will be in effect on the following routes beginning Monday, October 1st at 7 am:
·       SR 47 in Shelby County
·       SR 706 in Logan County
·       SR 245 in Champaign County
These lane closures will take place daily during daylight hours. One lane of traffic will remain open to motorists in each direction at all times through the use of temporary traffic signals.  The affected lanes are scheduled to reopen to motorists Wednesday, October 31st.  The overall completion date for this project is November of 2012.
 
These lane closures are due to crews replacing guardrail at several locations.
  
Arrow boards and signs will be in place prior to the work zone to alert motorists of the upcoming closure.  All work is weather permitting.
 
Safety is a top priority at ODOT.  To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
 
Ohio’s highways are essential to keeping and creating new jobs.  With a mission to provide easy movement of people and goods from place to place, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is responsible for maintaining one of the largest transportation networks in the nation.  Guided by ethical principles and accountability, ODOT works to improve safety, enhance travel and advance economic development.  As a $2.8 billion enterprise, the department wisely invests in its core services of snow and ice removal, annual construction program and highway maintenance operations.
