Brown-756 Drilled Shaft Project Wraps Up
Route Reopens To Traffic A Week Early
Chillicothe (Thursday, July 23, 2015) – A little earlier than expected, a drilled shaft and slide repair project on state Route 756 in Brown County has been completed, and the route is now open to traffic.
Crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Brown County Highway Maintenance Facility were mobilized to the 1.9-mile marker on Ohio-756 on Tuesday, July 21, to undertake the slide repair after operations for a similar project on S.R. 763 were shut down due to weather-related impacts.
Although the closure was scheduled to be in effect through the end of next week, crews were able to expedite their work, completing the project today, July 23, and reopening the route to traffic this afternoon.
Maintenance forces will return to S.R. 763 to repair the slide just south of County Road 31 (Martin Hill Road); however, the schedule to do so project has yet to be determined and will be contingent upon water levels in the creek. In addition, the route is now reduced to one lane in this area, where the pavement has been comprised as a result of further degradation in the creek.
