Brown-68 Culvert Replacements On Tap
Brown County Route To Be Closed During Business Hours
Chillicothe (Wednesday, June 12, 2013) – A pair of culvert replacements has been scheduled for U.S. Route 68 in Brown County, and the route will be closed during daytime, business hours for two days later this month.
On Monday and Tuesday, June 24 and 25, crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Brown County facility will be replacing two deteriorated culverts on U.S. 68. The first project site is located near the 41.65-mile marker, just north of Fayetteville, while the second culvert to be replaced is located at the 45.15-mile marker, north of the route’s junction with state Route 123.
On both days, the route will be closed from approximately 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and traffic will be detoured via U.S. 50 at Fayetteville and S.R. 251. All work is anticipated to be completed by 4 p.m. each day, with the route open to two-way traffic during the evening and overnight hours.
Although the entire project is anticipated to be completed by the close of the business day Tuesday, completion of all work will be contingent upon the weather.

Please note: This project was originally scheduled to be completed in April, but it was postponed due to scheduling conflicts.
