Bridge Repair Project Set To Begin On S.R. 134
Route to be closed March 3
Chillicothe (Tuesday, February 25, 2014) – Construction plans are under way for a bridge rehabilitation project on state Route 134 in Highland County, and the route will be closed to traffic early next month.
Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will be replacing the deck of the bridge situated over Little North Fork Creek and located at the route’s 10.58-mile marker, which is immediately north of Township Road 104 (Brown Road) and approximately 3.5 miles south of of U.S. Route 50 at Dodsonville. In addition to the deck, crews will be replacing approach slabs and portions of the bridge’s abutment.
Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, March 3, and the route will be closed to traffic during most of the project. While it is closed, motorists will be detoured via U.S. 50, U.S. 68 and S.R. 131.
DGM, Inc., of Beaver, Ohio was awarded a contract in the amount of $449,799.15 to repair the bridge, and all work is expected to be completed by mid-summer.
