Changes Imparted For Pike-220/Schuster Road Project
Traffic Patterns Switched At Schuster, Beaver Creek Roads
Chillicothe (Thursday, August 4, 2011) – With the relocation of state Route 220 in Pike County well under way, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation have imparted traffic changes at the route’s junction with County Road 81 (Schuster Road) and County Road 116 (Beaver Creek Road).
Closed since early June, Schuster Road is now open to traffic between S.R. 32 and Beaver Creek Road, and Beaver Creek Road has also been reopened to traffic between its junction with Schuster Road and S.R. 220.
However, traffic patterns have been switched and Schuster Road is now closed between Beaver Creek Road and its existing intersection with S.R. 220 at Zahn’s Corner, and Beaver Creek Road is closed between Schuster and Shyville roads to the west.
The entire project calls for relocating a section of S.R. 220 between its intersection with Zahn’s Corner Road and S.R. 32 by way of upgrading Schuster Road to the state highway system; installing a flashing signal at the new intersection of S.R. 220 and S.R. 32; abandoning the existing section of S.R. 220 between Zahn’s Corner Road and S.R. 32; and eliminating the crossover access to Germany Road.
Shelly and Sands, Incorporated of Zanesville, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of $2.6 million to the complete the project, and all work is scheduled to be completed in June 2012.
