Hayport Road Project Getting Started
Route’s Closure Not Yet Scheduled
Chillicothe - Although construction for a bridge replacement and roadway improvement project on Hayport Road in Scioto County is starting this week, closure of the route has not yet been scheduled.
Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will be replacing a bridge on County Road 257 (Hayport Road), between Township Road 449 (Keport Road) and French Road, south of U.S. Route 52 at Wheelersburg, as well as reconstructing a 3,300-foot section of roadway and raising the grade of the route’s pavement.
Crews from DGM Incorporated of Beaver, Ohio, are scheduled to begin working at the east end of the project site near French Road this week, installing monitoring devices and bringing equipment to the site. However, the route will remain open, and there should be little impact to traffic. While an exact date to close the route has not been established, it is anticipated that notification of the closure will be given one week in advance.
DGM Incorporated was awarded a contract in the amount of $3.875 million in June, and all construction is scheduled to be completed by August 31, 2010.
