Adams-348 Bridge Replacement Set To Begin
Route To Be Closed Next Week
Chillicothe (Wednesday, July 25, 2012) - Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation are set to undertake a bridge replacement project on state Route 348 in Adams County, and the route will be closed next week.
Crews from Boone Coleman Construction will close Ohio-348 on Monday, July 30, at the route’s 10.98-mile marker to replace the deficient twin-pipe structure with a four-sided, precast concrete box culvert. The project site is located at County Road 18 (Blue Creek Road) and Township Road 165 (Shawnee Road), just west of the route’s junction with S.R. 781 and the Scioto County line.
S.R. 348 is subject to be closed for up to 45 days, and while it is closed, motorists will be detoured by way of S.R. 781 to S.R. 41 near Jacksonville to S.R. 125 at West Union to S.R. 348.
Boone Coleman Construction, Inc., of West Portsmouth, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $174,673 to complete the project, and all associated work is anticipated to be completed by late November.
