Slide Repair Project Moving Into Phase 2
Chillicothe (Friday, June 6, 2014) - With a slide repair on
state Route 221 in Brown County already under way, contractors for the Ohio
Department of Transportation will be moving into the next phase of
construction and imparting a closure of the route this month.
Crews from Sunesis Construction
Company will close S.R. 221 at the 6.50-mile marker, approximately 1.5 miles
south of S.R. 125 at Georgetown, where they are relocating approximately
1,720 feet of roadway to correct the slip area.
The closure is scheduled to go into
effect on Monday, June 16, and while the route is closed, motorists will be
detoured via U.S. 52, U.S. 62/68 and S.R. 125.
Sunesis Construction was awarded a contract
for approximately $559,290 to complete the project, and all work is
anticipated to be completed by mid-summer.
