Bridge Replacement Project Set To Begin On S.R. 125
Chillicothe (Tuesday, June 11, 2013) – Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation are set to begin a bridge replacement project on state Route 125 in Adams County.
On Monday, June 17, crews from the John R. Jurgensen Company will close S.R. 125 at the Adams-Brown County line to order to replace a pair of bridges located at the 0.40 and the 0.48-mile markers. Situated over Kirker Hollow and Sacramento Run, the bridges are located just east of Township Road 12 (Grimes Road).
Throughout construction, the route will be closed, and traffic will be detoured by way of S.R. 136 and S.R. 32 to U.S. 62 in Brown County to S.R. 125 at Russellville.
The Jurgensen Company, of Cincinnati, Ohio was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $1.095 million to resurface the route, and all work is anticipated to be completed by mid-fall.
