Additional Lane Restrictions Scheduled At Jackson-35 Project
Traffic Delays Anticipated As Ramps Are Restricted, Closed
Chillicothe - In conjunction with an ongoing resurfacing project on U.S. Route 35 in Jackson County, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will be milling and paving the on/off ramps at three interchanges, forcing lane closures and restrictions later this week.
Beginning Thursday, September 25, and continuing through the remainder of the week, crews from Shelly and Sands Incorporated will be resurfacing the on/off ramps at the interchanges of County Road 84 (Chillicothe Pike), state Route 93 and County Road 10 (Pattonsville Road).
In a rolling operation, crews will begin milling at the west end of the project site at the Chillicothe Pike ramps, and traffic will be maintained by flaggers as crews progress toward the east end of the project zone. The contractors will then follow with paving operations at each ramp separately, closing the respective ramp to all traffic.
Weather permitting, this phase of the project should be completed within three to four days. However, motorists may encounter intermittent periods of delay while crews are milling the ramps, and they should seek alternate routes when ramps are closed.
Shelly and Sands, of Zanesville, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $3.58 million to resurface U.S. 35 between County Road 71 (Lloyds Bridge Road) and state Route 32, and the completion date for the entire project is October 31, 2008.
