Flatwood Fallen Timber Road Restrictions On Tap Next Week
Chillicothe (Thursday, March 31, 2016) – County Road 184 (Flatwood Fallen Timber Road) will be subject to single-lane restrictions next week as part of construction for the new state Route 823 in Scioto County.
Beginning Monday, April 4, and continuing throughout the week, Flatwood Fallen Timber Road will be restricted to one lane while crews from the Portsmouth Joint Venture (PJV) finish tree clearing and grubbing. Operations will take place at locations within the project right of way at any time from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Traffic will be maintained by flaggers when crews are at work, and the route will be open without restrictions during the evening and overnight hours. Motorists are reminded of the need for additional caution through the entire corridor, where crews and heavy equipment are moving in and out of the various work zones.
