Guardrail Project Gets Under Way On C.R. 223
Chillicothe (Thursday, March 25, 2010) – Ohio Department of Transportation District 9 Deputy Director James A. Brushart has announced that a guardrail replacement project has begun on County Road 223 (Dry Run Road) in Ross County.
“Guardrail replacement projects such as this are necessary to ensure the safety of our roadways for the traveling public, as well as to preserve our infrastructure,” said Brushart. “This is one of many such projects taking place during this year’s construction season, and we are pleased to be working with Ross County Engineer Charlie Ortman and his department to complete this project.”
Crews from PDK Construction of Pomeroy, Ohio, will be replacing guardrail at various locations along 11.5 miles of Dry Run Road, between its junction with C.R. 222 (Charleston Pike) and state Route 159 at Kingston.
Construction will get under way today, March 25, and throughout the project, traffic will be maintained with the aid of flaggers as needed; motorists may encounter brief periods of delay when crews are at work. The project is scheduled to be completed by April 30.
