Comment Period Open For S.R. 41 Culvert Replacement Project
Chillicothe (Tuesday, February 14, 2017) – As part of the Ohio Department of Transportation – District 9’s Planning & Engineering Department, the district’s Environmental Office is seeking public input on a culvert replacement project in Adams County.
ADA-41-20.28 (PID: 21964) – It is proposed to replace the structure on state Route 41 that is located at the 20.28-mile marker, between C.R. 6 (Fawcett Road) and T.R. 91 (Murphin Ridge Road), approximately three miles south of S.R. 781 in Oliver Township. The existing structure is a single-span concrete bridge, and it will be replaced with a three-sided arched top culvert.
The project will require approximately 0.063 acres of permanent right of way and 0.406 acres of temporary right of way; however, no homes or businesses will be removed as a result. A contract is scheduled to be awarded in the spring of 2019, closure of the roadway may be necessary to complete all or portions of the project.
