Replacement Set To Begin On S.R. 335
Route Closure Scheduled Next Week
June 12, 2018) – Preliminary operations are getting under way for a culvert
replacement project on state Route 335 in Pike County, and closure of
the route is scheduled to go into effect next week.
S.R. 335 will be
closed between Township Road 511 (Straight
Creek Road) and County Road 50 (Watson Road) for a culvert replacement
project that involves replacing a twin, corrugated metal pipe arch with a
10x4-foot box culvert with full-height wingwalls and headwalls.
The closure is necessary due to the skew of the existing and
proposed structures, as well as the project site’s relation to a tributary and
the slope of the terrain adjacent to the roadway. And although the
contractors had planned to close the route today, June 12, the schedule has
been postponed due to weather and materials-related delays.
Currently, it is
anticipated that the route will be closed Tuesday, June 19, and once the
route is closed, motorists will be detoured by way of S.R. 32 and U.S. 23. A local detour
will also be established via Watson and Higby roads
and Old U.S. 35 in Ross County.
Solid Rock Construction Services
was awarded a contract in the amount of $291,238 to complete the project, and
while the route may be closed for up to 45 days to install the new structure,
all work is scheduled to be completed by late summer.
