Construction Under Way For Slide Repair
S.R. 93 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 state Route 93 in Lawrence County.
Crews from the Alan Stone Company began operations today, August 1, to repair a landslide at the route’s 22.34-mile marker, four miles south of the Jackson County line. The project site is located between County Road 193 (Telegraph Hill Road) and C.R. 40 (Brady Fork Road), and construction includes repairing the slide with a drilled shaft retaining wall, as well as pavement and guardrail repairs.
Throughout the construction, S.R. 93 will be reduced to one, 12-foot lane, and traffic will be maintained by temporary signals.
Alan Stone was awarded a contract for approximately $684,579 to repair the slip, and the project is anticipated to be completed in mid-fall.
