Period Open For Lawrence-522 Culvert Replacement
Chillicothe (Thursday, September 07, 2017) – As part of the Ohio Department of Transportation – District
9’s Planning & Engineering Department, the district’s Environmental Office
is seeking public input for a culvert replacement project on state Route 522
in Lawrence County.
LAW-522-1.38 (PID: 103654) – It
is proposed to replace the structure on S.R. 522 at the 1.38-mile marker, between
S.R. 650 and T.R. 254E (Wagner Bridge Empire Road), in Elizabeth Township. The
project includes replacing the existing corrugated metal pipe arch with a
precast, concrete box culvert and full-height headwalls.
The project will not require any new right of way, and no homes
or businesses will be removed as a result. A closure of the route during
construction is not anticipated; however, the roadway may be subject to
short-term periods of closure or single-lane restrictions to complete all or
portions of the project.
Written comments should be submitted by September 21, 2017, or
the deadline date that is posted on the web site, to:
