Slide Repair Forces Restrictions On S.R. 28
Chillicothe (Monday, February 11, 2019) – An emergency slide repair project will take place
this week on state Route 28 in Ross County, requiring daytime closure of the
route February 13 through 15.
S.R. 28 has been reduced to one lane
between C.R. 110 (Maple Grove Road) and T.R. 100A (Musselman Station Road),
approximately two miles west of U.S. 50 at Slate Mills, where a slip has
occurred along the shoulder of the route’s westbound lane.
Currently, traffic is being maintained
in one lane with temporary signals. However, the route will be closed
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, from approximately 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day
for ODOT crews to repair the slide with a drilled shaft installation project.
During periods of closure, traffic
will be detoured by way of U.S. 50 at Slate Mills and S.R. 41 at Bainbridge,
with the route open to one lane of signalized traffic during the evening and
overnight hours. Although the route will be open at these times to
non-commercial traffic and eastbound truck traffic, all westbound truck
traffic will be detoured via U.S. 50 and S.R. 41 through the remainder of the
Weather permitting, the project should be completed by
the end of the work day on Friday, February 15.
