C.R. 1 Bridge Replacement On Tap
Chillicothe - A double bridge replacement project on County Road 1 in Lawrence County has begun as site preparations are under way and contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation prepare to close a section of the route this week.
According to ODOT District 9 Deputy Director James Brushart, crews from Shelly and Sands Incorporated will be replacing two bridges located at the 9.32 and 9.48-mile markers on County Road 1 (Old U.S. Route 52), between the route’s junction with the U.S. 52/County Road 144 (Charley Creek Road) intersection and Township Road 1076 (Farm Road), at Sybene.
The closure is scheduled to go into effect Wednesday, May 13, and while C.R. 1 is closed, traffic will be detoured into Sybene via Township Road 276 (Sandusky Road). In addition, all traffic will be maintained on C.R. 1 up to its intersection with Evans Drive and Finch Lane, giving motorists access to businesses and homes along the route.
Shelly and Sands was awarded a contract in the amount of $1.2 million to replace the structures, and the entire project is scheduled to be completed by October 15, 2009.
