Culvert Replacement On Tap For Ross-28
Route To Be Closed Friday, August 24
Chillicothe (Friday, August 17, 2012) – A culvert replacement project on state Route 28 in Ross County is scheduled to take place, and the route will be closed for one day late next week.
Crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Ross County Highway Maintenance Facility will close S.R. 28 at the 15.44-mile marker to replace a deteriorated culvert. The project site is located approximately two miles west of U.S. Route 50 at Slate Mills, between County Road 110 (Maple Grove Road) and Township Road 100A (Musselman Station Road).
The closure is scheduled to go into effect at approximately 8:30 a.m. Friday, August 24, and continue until 3:30 p.m. or until all work is completed; completion of the project will be contingent upon the weather.
While the route is closed, motorists will be detoured by way of U.S. 50 at State Mills to S.R. 41 at Bainbridge to S.R. 28.
