Contractors Scheduled To Begin Paving Work
On Area Routes
Chillicothe - A preventive maintenance project is scheduled to get under way next week on four separate routes in three counties.
Construction is set to begin Monday, August 3, and as weather permits, crews from the Shelly Company will be chip-sealing portions of state Route 28 in Ross County, routes 506 and 753 in Highland County, and U.S. 52 in Scioto County, totaling almost 31 miles of roadway in these counties.
On Ross-28, the project zone will be located between the 6.5-mile marker just east of County Road 59 (Harper Station Road) and the 17.3-mile marker at U.S. 50 near Slate Mills. In Highland County, the contractors will be working on S.R. 753 between S.R. 41 and U.S. 50 and on S.R. 506 between S.R. 124 and S.R. 753. And in Scioto County, they will be paving U.S. 52 from the Adams County line to the 8.6-mile marker near Township Road 323 (Tipton Road).
Although an exact schedule has yet to be established, the contractors are anticipated to begin working in Ross County. Throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in one lane with the aid of flaggers when crews are at work; however, motorists are advised to expect periods of delay.
The Shelly Company of Thornville, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $849,925 to complete all four phases of the project, and the scheduled completion date for all work is September 1, 2009.
