Brown-52 Restricted For Slip Repair Project
Traffic Signals In Operation Monday
Chillicothe (Thursday, March 17, 2011) – As construction gets under way for a slip repair project on U.S. Route 52 in Brown County, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will impart additional lane restrictions next week.
According to Ohio Department of Transportation - District 9 Deputy Director Vaughn Wilson, crews from DGM Incorporated have begun preliminary operations to repair a slip at the route’s 16.01-mile marker, just west of the junction with Township Road 573 (Three Mile Creek Road).
“This is one of 15 projects taking place in Brown County during this year’s construction season, and part of the nearly $145 million construction season we have taking place in District 9,” said Wilson.
Throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of temporary traffic signals, and the signals are scheduled to be activated Monday, March 21.
DGM of Beaver, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $1.19 million, and the scheduled completion date is August 31, 2011.
