Comment Period Open For Jackson-35 Bridge
(Thursday, December 21, 2017) – As part of the Ohio Department
of Transportation – District 9’s Planning Department, the district’s
Environmental Office is seeking public input for a bridge rehabilitation
project on U.S. Route 35 in Jackson County.
(PID: 104065) – It is proposed to rehabilitate
the structure located at the 0.41-mile marker, between Township Road 514
(Wilson Road) and County Road 27 (Bronx Corner Road) and just east of the
Jackson-Ross Count line in Jackson Township. The project consists of lining
the existing 72-inch corrugated metal pipe with a 60-inch pipe liner and
replacing the headwalls.
The project will not require
any new right of way, and no homes or businesses will be removed as a result
of the project. A contract is scheduled to be awarded in the summer of 2018,
and although a closure of the route will not be necessary, short-term lane
restrictions will be in effect during construction.
Written comments should
be submitted by January 5, 2018, or the deadline date that is posted on the
web site, to:
Greg Manson, ODOT
District 9 Environmental Supervisor
P.O. Box 467; 650 Eastern Avenue, Chillicothe, Ohio 45601
