Construction Set To Begin On Lawrence-52
Operations To Start Next Week
Chillicothe (Friday, September 3, 2010) – Operations for a two-mile, four-lane resurfacing project are set to begin next week on U.S. Route 52 in Lawrence County, according to Ohio Department of Transportation District 9 Deputy Director James Brushart.
“Although we’re moving into fall, our construction program is still very active, so it is important to remind motorists of the continued need for additional safety in work zones,” said Brushart. “And with an investment of more than $6 million, this is just one of the eight preservation, safety and enhancement projects in which we are working to improve Lawrence County’s state highway system.”
Beginning Tuesday, September 7, crews from the Shelly Company will begin paving operations on U.S. 52 between the Scioto-Lawrence County line to just east of County Road 23 (Ohio Furnace Road) near Hanging Rock. Throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in at least one lane in each direction.
The Shelly Company of Thornville, Ohio, was awarded a contract in May for nearly $1.7 million, and the scheduled completion date for all work is October 31, 2010.
