Construction Set For Ross-772 Culvert Replacement
Chillicothe (Friday, June 5, 2015) – Construction will soon get under way for a culvert replacement project on state Route 772 in southern Ross County, with contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation closing the route to traffic this month.
On Monday, June 15, crews from DGM, Inc. will close S.R. 772 at the 1.89-mile marker to replace a deficient culvert and repair the approaches. The project site is located between Township Road 172 (Harris Station Road) and Township Road 172 (Camelin Hill Road), approximately two miles north of the Ross-Pike County line.
The closure will be in effect for up to 30 days, and while the route is closed, motorists will be detoured by way of U.S. 23, S.R. 104, S.R. 551 and S.R. 220 in Pike County; an unsigned local detour will also be designated via county roads.
DGM, Inc. of Beaver, Ohio was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $257,458 to replace the culvert, and all work is anticipated to be completed in late summer.
