Comment Period Open For S.R. 73 Widening
(Thursday, May 17, 2018) – As part of the Ohio Department of
Transportation – District 9’s Planning Department, the district’s
Environmental Office is seeking public input for a minor widening project in Adams
(PID: 101808) – The proposed project is to
widen the north side of the route by adding standard shoulders and extending
the existing culverts along state Route 73, between its intersection with
S.R. 32 and County Road 18 (Jaybird Road). Construction will require
approximately 5.752 acres of permanent right of way; however, no homes or
businesses will be removed as a result of the project.
A contract is
scheduled to be awarded in the summer of 2019, and although a full closure of
the route is not anticipated, short-term, intermittent periods of closure and
lane restrictions may be in effect during some phases of construction.
