Replacement Project Set To Begin On S.R. 134
Route to be closed August
Chillicothe (Tuesday, July 8, 2014) – With one
bridge rehabilitation on state Route 134 in Highland County already completed
this construction season, a second will get under way this year, with
operations set to begin next month.
Contractors for the Ohio
Department of Transportation will be replacing the deck, abutments and
approach slabs of the bridge at the route’s 6.01-mile marker and situated
over North Fork White Oak Creek. The project site is located immediately south
of Township Road 406 (Rosselott Road) and approximately 1 and ¼ miles north of
S.R. 138 at Buford.
Construction is scheduled
to begin Monday, August 4, and the route will be closed to traffic throughout
most of the project. While it is closed, motorists will be detoured via S.R.
138 and S.R. 131.
Shelly and Sands, Inc. was awarded a
contract in the amount of $944,241.50 to repair the bridge, and all work is
expected to be completed in late fall. For additional information on lane and
