Chillicothe (Thursday, July 9, 2015) – Crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Brown County Highway Maintenance Facility will undertake a series of culvert replacement projects on separate routes this month, weather permitting.
On Monday, July 20, highway technicians will close S.R. 125 between Township Road 153 (Blackshire Road) and T.R. 515 (Liming Lake Road), approximately three-quarters of a mile east of the Brown-Clermont County line, for a two-day culvert replacement project. The closure will be in effect beginning at 8 a.m., July 20, and continue through 4 p.m. Tuesday, July 21, and while S.R. 125 is closed, motorists will be detoured via S.R. 774 and S.R. 133 in Clermont County.
Following this, crews will shift operations to S.R. 505 and the 6.83-mile marker, for a three-day culvert replacement project between S.R. 756 and County Road 84 (Feesburg-Poetown Road). The closure will go into effect at approximately 8 a.m., July 22, and continue until 4 p.m. Friday, July 24. Motorists will be detoured by way of S.R. 125, S.R. 221 and U.S. 52.
Prior to the start of these projects, though, S.R. 131 will be closed Tuesday, July 14, for a single-day culvert replacement between T.R. 80292 (Lorelei Road) and U.S. 50. The route will be closed from approximately 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and while it is closed, motorists will be detoured via U.S. 50 and S.R. 133 in Clermont County.
This project was originally scheduled to take place Wednesday, July 8; however, it was postponed due to inclement weather.
