Bridge, Culvert Replacement Scheduled For S.R. 134
Closure to go into
effect next week
10, 2018) – A bridge and culvert replacement project is under way on state
Route 134 in Highland County, and a closure of the route will go into effect
While contractors for the Ohio Department of
Transportation began operations in March to clear the project area and start
preliminary work, crews from Sunesis Construction Company are now ready to close
the route to begin the first phase of two-phase project that includes replacing
a culvert over Anthony Run and a bridge over Dodson Creek, which are situated
between U.S. Route 50 at Dodsonville and the village of Lynchburg.
On Monday, May 14, S.R. 134 will be closed between Township Road 119B
(Kier Road) and T.R. 120B (Anderson Road) for the culvert replacement, and the
closure will be in effect for 45 days. Following this, the route will be
closed just north of T.R. 120 (Crampton Road), approximately 1.5 miles south
of Lynchburg, for approximately 90 days while the contractors replace the bridge
over Dodson Creek.
Although a date to close the route near
Crampton Road has yet to be determined, the closure at this location will not
go into effect until after the route has been reopened at the site of the
culvert replacement north of Kier Road. Throughout construction at either
location, traffic will be detoured by way of U.S. 50 and S.R. 135.
sis Construction was awarded a contract for approximately $1.06
million to complete the project, and all work is anticipated to be completed
in early fall.
