Chillicothe’s South Bridge Street Reopening To Traffic
Chillicothe (Friday, August 23, 2013) – Major construction for a bridge replacement project on state Route 104 in Chillicothe is nearing completion, and the route is now open to traffic.
Crews from Complete General Construction have reopened South Bridge Street between Southern Avenue and Eighth Street/Eastern Avenue, where the route has been closed to replace the bridge over the CSX Corporation and Glatfelter Railroad.
Although there is still work to be completed, the route will be open to two lanes of traffic in each direction through the weekend. During the remainder of construction, the road will be subject to intermittent restrictions and lane closures in which it will be open to one lane in each direction.
Complete General Construction was awarded a contract for approximately $2.34 million, and all work associated with the project is anticipated to be completed by mid-fall.
