Chillicothe (Thursday, May 30, 2013) – Crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Pike County Highway Maintenance Facility will undertake a pair of culvert replacement projects next month on two separate routes in Pike County.
On Monday, June 3, crews will close state Route 220 at the 11.99-mile marker, between Township Road 501 (Marcus Run Road) and T.R. 537 (Progress Drive), approximately two miles east of Waverly, to replace a deteriorated culvert. The closure will go into effect at 8 a.m. and continue through the end of the work day on Thursday, June 6. While the route is closed, motorists will be detoured via U.S. Route 23 at Waverly and S.R. 32 at Piketon.
Then, during the week of June 10, S.R. 772 will be closed for a culvert replacement project at the 8.44-mile marker. The project site is situated between T.R. 331 (Strutt Road) and C.R. 85 (Tennyson Road), approximately 1/2 mile south of S.R. 32.
The weeklong project will begin at approximately 8 a.m. Monday and continue through the end of the business day, or approximately 4 p.m., Friday, June 14. Throughout the week, the route will be closed, and motorists will be detoured via S.R. 32, S.R. 73 and S.R. 772.
