Additional Lane Restrictions Going Into Effect
For Lawrence-52 Project
Traffic Patterns To Be Changed On 13th Street (Ashland) Bridge
Chillicothe – In conjunction with a resurfacing and rehabilitation project on U.S. Route 52 in Lawrence County, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will be imparting lane restrictions and switching traffic patterns on the 13th Street/Simeon Willis Bridge at Ashland, Kentucky.
On Tuesday, July 28, two lanes of northbound traffic on the 13th Street Bridge will be reduced to one lane in order to mitigate traffic flow from two, left-turn lanes to a single, westbound lane onto U.S. 52. While the outside left-turn lane will be closed, the inside left-turn lane and the (eastbound) right-turn lane from the bridge to U.S. 52 will remain open.
These lane restrictions are anticipated to be in effect beginning at approximately 4 p.m. tomorrow and continue through mid-August.
Crews from Shelly and Sands Incorporated of Zanesville, Ohio, are replacing bridge decks and resurfacing U.S. 52 between the 5.00-mile marker just east of state Route 650 at Hanging Rock and the 11.84-mile marker at the eastern corporation limit of Coal Grove.
Shelly and Sands was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $10.9 million, and throughout construction, an 11.5-foot width restriction and a 45-mile-per-hour speed limit are in effect within the project zone.
