Culvert Replacement Scheduled Next Week On U.S. 68
Brown County Route To Be Restricted To One Lane
Chillicothe (Monday, September 10, 2012) – A culvert replacement project has been scheduled for U.S. Route 68 in Brown County, and the route will be reduced to one lane of traffic for one day next week.
On Wednesday, September 19, crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Brown County facility will be replacing a culvert on U.S. 68 near the 38.4-mile marker, between County Road 65 (Vilvens Road) and state Route 131. Throughout the day, the route will be open to one lane of traffic and maintained by flaggers.
Although it will remain open to traffic, the route will be subject to short-term, intermittent periods of closure for crews to move equipment; the temporary periods of closure will be approximately 15 to 20 minutes in duration.
Motorists are advised of periods of delay, and as there will be no posted detour, they may want to seek alternate routes. All work is anticipated to be completed by 4 p.m.; however, completion of the project will be contingent upon the weather.
