Bridge Replacement Slated On Brown-353
Route To Be Closed Later This Month
Chillicothe (Wednesday, April 14, 2010) B Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will undertake a project on state Route 353 in Brown County that will require closure of the route later this month.
According to ODOT District 9 Deputy Director James Brushart, crews from DGM, Inc., will close the route between U.S. Route 62 and state Route 125 to replace a deteriorated structure located at the route’s 1.26-mile marker, approximately one-third mile west of Township Road 4 (Mt. Aire Road), and situated over Redoak Creek. The route is scheduled to be closed Monday, April 26, weather permitting.
“During the 2010-2011 construction season, ODOT will be delivering on time, on budget, and at the highest level of quality, the largest construction program in Ohio history,” said Brushart. “It will be a busy year for the district, as well as the entire department, as we work to preserve our infrastructure and improve our vast transportation network of highways and bridges.”
DGM was awarded a contract in the amount of $248,062.83 to complete the project, and while the route is closed, motorists will be detoured by way of U.S. 62 and S.R. 125. The closure is anticipated to be in effect for up to 60 days, and the entire project is scheduled to be completed by July 31, 2010.
