Culvert Replacements Scheduled For Brown-62
Route To Be Closed Next Week
Chillicothe (Monday, June 3, 2013) – A series of culvert replacement projects has been scheduled for U.S. Route 62 in Brown County, and the route will be closed to traffic next week.
On Monday, June 10, crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Brown County maintenance facility will close U.S. 62 to begin the first of three culvert replacements between Russellville and Red Oak. The project sites are located at the 12.40, 13.05 and 14.74-mile markers, which are between the route’s junction with state Route 353 at Red Oak and County Road 15 (George Miller Road), just south of Russellville.
The closure will go into effect at approximately 8 a.m. Monday, and it will remain in effect through the end of the business day Thursday, June 13. Although all work is anticipated to be completed by the close of the business day Thursday, completion will be contingent upon the weather.
While the route is closed, motorists will be detoured via state Route 125 at Russellville and U.S. 68 at Georgetown.
