Culvert Replacements Scheduled For U.S. 68
Brown County Route To Be Restricted To One Lane
Chillicothe (Thursday, April 11, 2013) – A pair of culvert replacements has been scheduled for U.S. Route 68 in Brown County, and the route will be reduced to one lane of traffic during daytime, business for one week later this month.
During the week of April 22, crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Brown County facility will be replacing two deteriorated culverts on U.S. 68. The first project site is located near the 41.65-mile marker, just north of Fayetteville, while the second culvert to be replaced is located at the 45.15-mile marker, north of the route’s junction with state Route 123.
Throughout the week, the route will be open to one lane of traffic and maintained by flaggers; however, motorists may encounter intermittent periods of short-term delay while crews move equipment and materials. Although the route will be open to traffic, motorists may want to seek alternate routes during crews’ working hours to avoid possible periods of delay.
All work is anticipated to be completed by 4 p.m. each day, with the route open to two-way traffic during the evening and overnight hours. The entire project is anticipated to be completed by the close of the business day Friday, April 26, and completion of all work will be contingent upon the weather.
