County Road Bridge Replacement Set To Begin
Greenbush Road To Be Closed For 120 Days
Chillicothe (Wednesday, February 29, 2012) – Working in conjunction with the Highland County Engineer’s Office, the Ohio Department of Transportation announces the start of a county road bridge replacement project next week in Highland County.
Contractors for ODOT and the HCEO will be replacing a bridge located on County Road 39 (Greenbush Road), immediately west of the village of Buford and approximately 1.5 miles east of the Highland-Brown County line. The structure is situated over the North Fork of White Oak Creek and at the route’s junction with Township Road 182A (Beltz Road).
Weather permitting, construction is set to begin Monday, March 5, and the route will be closed to traffic for up to 120 days. While it is closed, motorists will be detoured by way of S.R. 134, S.R. 286 and U.S. 68.
The Eagle Bridge Company of Sidney, Ohio, was awarded a contract for approximately $817,507 to replace the structure, and the anticipated completion for all work is July 31.
