Improvement Set To Begin At Prospect, Pleasant Roads
Chillicothe (Friday, June 6, 2014) – With site
preparations already under way, an intersection improvement project will begin
on county and township roads in Highland County next week.
Working in conjunction
with the Highland County Engineer’s Office, the Ohio Department of
Transportation has awarded a contract to Cox Paving to correct the vertical
profile of the intersection of County Road 5 (Prospect Road) with C.R. 74B
(Pleasant Road) and Township Road 192A (Main Road.
The project area is
situated between state routes 73 and 124 in Marshall Township, and while
improving the sight distance at the routes’ junction, the project will also
meet the appropriate design standards for the alignment and speed limit.
“This is a much-needed
safety improvement project for this intersection, and we are pleased to be
working with Dean Otworth and his office as the project moves forward through
construction,” said ODOT District 9 Deputy Director Vaughn Wilson.
Construction is scheduled to begin by
Friday, June 13, and Prospect Road will be closed at its intersection with
Main and Pleasant roads. While the route is closed, motorists will be
detoured via S.R. 73, C.R. 21 (N. Union Road) and C.R. 93 (Harriett Road); a
local detour will also include T.R. 264 (Herbert Road).
Cox Paving of Washington
Court House, Ohio, was awarded a contract for approximately $950,903 to complete
the project, and all work is anticipated to be
completed by late fall.
