Construction Begins For Brown-52 Slide Repair
Route Reduced To One Lane
Chillicothe (Monday, August 1, 2016) – With contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation imparting lane restrictions today, construction for a slide repair project is under way on U.S. Route 52 in Brown County.
Crews from the Alan Stone Company began operations today, August 1, to repair a landslide at the route’s 8.84-mile marker, four miles east of the route’s junction with S.R. 221 at Higginsport. The project site is located between County Road 307 (Old A&P Road) and Township Road 255 (Pisgah Hill Road), and construction includes repairing the slide with a drilled shaft retaining wall, as well as pavement and guardrail repairs.
Throughout the project, U.S. 52 will be reduced to one, 12-foot lane, and traffic will be maintained by temporary signals.
Alan Stone was awarded a contract for approximately $329,800 to repair the slide, and the project is anticipated to be completed in early October.
