Construction Set To Begin On Adams-770
Chillicothe (Wednesday, November 26, 2014) – Although the 2014 construction season is coming to a close, a project is slated to begin in Adams County as contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will impart lane restrictions next week on state Route 770.
On Monday, December 1, crews from the Alan Stone Company will reduce S.R. 770 to one, 11-foot lane at the 2.01-mile marker for a slide repair project. Situated approximately two miles east of S.R. 247 in the village of Seaman, the project site is located between County Road 14 (Tranquility Pike) and Township Road 411 (McCreight Road).
The project includes building a retaining wall, correcting drainage and repairing the pavement, and throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of temporary traffic signals.
Alan Stone, of Cutler, Ohio was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $487,201 to correct the slide, and all work is anticipated to be completed by late May 2015.
