Culvert Replacement Project Slated To Begin In Shawnee Forest
Chillicothe (Friday, February 13, 2015) - Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation are set to begin a culvert replacement project later this month in Shawnee State Forest.
Crews from Roberts Paving will be replacing a series of numerous culverts and headwalls at multiple locations on Forest Roads 4, 6, 13, 16, 18, and 19. In addition, crews will be installing rock channel protection and completing pavement or surface repairs at the specified locations in the park.
Construction is scheduled to begin February 23, and throughout most of the project, traffic will be maintained by flaggers when crews are at work. However, F.R. 4, 6 and 13 will be subject to intermittent periods of closure at certain locations, with motorists detoured locally.
Roberts Paving, Inc. of Mowrystown, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of $454,165, and the project is scheduled to be completed in mid-spring.
