Construction Set For Pike-32 With Concrete Sealing Project
Contractors scheduled to begin operations next week
Chillicothe (Friday, August 13, 2010) – Operations will get under way next week on state Route 32 in Pike County as contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation prepare for a bridge project at the Scioto River overflow.
“As part of a very active construction program in Pike County, this bridge sealing project one of the many preservation, safety and enhancement projects in which we are investing more than $10 million to preserve our infrastructure and improve our network of highways and bridges,” said District 9 Deputy Director James A. Brushart.
According to Brushart, crews from Suburban Maintenance and Construction, Inc. will be sealing the bridge girders to the twin structures that are located at the 14.33-mile marker, between the route’s junction with state Route 104 and U.S. Route 23.
Crews are scheduled to begin work Monday, August 16, and the route will be reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction. During Phase 1 construction, traffic will be restricted to the driving lanes, and it will be shifted to the passing lanes during Phase 2 construction.
Suburban Maintenance and Construction, Inc., of North Royalton, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of $278,194 to seal the bridges, and the entire project is scheduled to be completed by September 30.
