Culvert Work Gets Under Way On Pike, Ross-772
Chillicothe (Monday, June 20, 2016) – Preliminary work is under way for a preservation project on state Route 772, with contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation working in Pike and Ross counties.
Crews from R C Construction are relining a culvert on S.R. 772 in Pike County at the route’s 0.98-mile marker, which is located between the junctions of the Pike-Scioto County line and near Township Road 311 (Vanaka Road). The contractors will also be replacing a culvert at the 2.49-mile marker on Ross-772, immediately south of T.R. 154 (Camelin Hill Road) and approximately 2.5 miles north of the Pike County line.
Throughout construction at the Pike County site, S.R. 772 will remain open, and there should be little impact to motorists, with traffic being maintained in one lane by flaggers as needed.
S.R. 772 in Ross County, however, will be closed, and the closure is scheduled to go into effect on Monday, June 27. The route will be closed through late July, and motorists will be detoured via S.R. 220, U.S. 23 and U.S. 50 in Chillicothe.
The R C Construction Company was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $222,842 to complete the project, and all work is anticipated to be finished in mid-summer.
