Construction Set To Begin On Lawrence-93
Chillicothe (Friday, May 1, 2015) – Preliminary operations will get under way next week on state Route 93 in Lawrence County as contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation undertake a slide repair at the route’s 23.17-mile marker.
Crews from the Alan Stone Company will be remediating a landslide area on S.R. 93 by installing a drilled shaft retaining wall, repairing pavement and correcting drainage. The project site is located between County Road 193 (Telegraph Hill Road) and C.R. 40 (Brady Fork Road), approximately four miles south of the Jackson County line.
During the week of May 4, motorists may encounter single-lane restrictions within the project area while crews are establishing traffic controls. Although traffic will be maintained by flaggers during this time, throughout most construction, traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of temporary signals. The signals are scheduled to go into operation on Monday, May 11.
Alan Stone was awarded a contract in March for approximately $265,030 to undertake the project, and all work is anticipated to be completed in mid to late-summer.
In an unrelated project, S.R. 217 will be reduced to one lane at the 15.6-mile marker during the week of May 4 for crews from ODOT’s Lawrence County maintenance facility to install drilled shafts.
The project site is situated between C.R. 12 (Big Paddy Road) and C.R. 73 (Federal Creek Road), approximately two miles west of the junction with S.R. 7, and throughout the week, traffic will be maintained during daytime, working hours with the use of flaggers.
