Intermittent Lane Restrictions On Blue Run Road Scheduled
Chillicothe (Friday, September 2, 2016) – As part of an upcoming culvert installation project on Township Road 381 (Flowers-Ison Road), County Road 29 (Blue Run Road) will be subject to intermittent lane restrictions one day next week.
On Wednesday, September 7, Blue Run Road will be reduced to one lane near the intersection of Flowers-Ison Road while crews from the Portsmouth Joint Venture (PJV) set barrier wall. The barrier wall is being erected to provide for traffic control during the culvert and storm sewer drainage installation project that will take place this month on Flowers-Ison.
Throughout the day, traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of flaggers. Motorists are reminded of the need for additional in this and other work zones, where crews and heavy equipment are moving in and out of the S.R. 823 construction corridor.
In the spirit of a public-private partnership, the Ohio Department of Transportation and the Portsmouth Gateway Group are constructing the new state Route 823, a 16-mile, four-lane, limited access highway from U.S. 23 at Lucasville to U.S. 52 at Sciotoville in Scioto County. The Southern Ohio Veterans Memorial Highway is the department’s first P3 project and the largest, modern earthwork project to be constructed in the state’s history.
The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.
