Under Way On U.S. 23
DOE Interchange Ramps To Be Closed
(Friday, August 01, 2014) – With construction of a five-mile paving project under way on
U.S. Route 23 in Pike County, contractors for the Ohio Department of
Transportation – District 9 are preparing for the next phase of the project.
Crews from Shelly and
Sands, Incorporated are paving 5.25 miles of U.S. 23
from the Pike-Scioto County line to just north of Township Road 603 (Seif
Road). Construction also includes
paving the interchange ramps to the U.S. Department of Energy/American Centrifuge
Facility, as well as repairing the structures over the Norfolk Southern
Railroad County Road 84 (Wakefield Mound Road) and over Big Run Creek.
As part of the project, the
interchange ramps to and from the DOE facility will be closed for joint
repair and paving. The closure is scheduled to go into effect by 5 a.m.
Monday, August 4, and continue throughout the week. While the ramps are
closed, motorists will be detoured by way of S.R. 32 and C.R. 58
(Shyville Road), as well as via C.R. 59 (Big Run Road).
Throughout construction, mainline traffic on U.S.
23 is being maintained in a minimum of one, 12-foot
lane in each direction, and all work is
scheduled to be completed by mid-fall.
