Intermittent Closures Slated For Jackson-124 Bridge Project
Route To Be Closed Periodically Thursday
Chillicothe (Wednesday, June 27, 2012) – As part of an ongoing bridge replacement on state Route 124 in Jackson County, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will impart additional traffic restrictions in the construction zone next week.
On Thursday, June 28, crews from Complete General Construction Company will close S.R. 124 temporarily at the route’s 20.17-mile marker to set I-beams for the bridge. The intermittent periods of closure are scheduled to be in effect at any time between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., and the duration of each closure is anticipated to be between 15 and 30 minutes.
Although there is no specified time for Thursday’s operations to take place, there are three beams which need to be set, and each phase will require a short-term, non-continuous closure.
Complete General is replacing a bridge located near Township Road 184 (Kisor Road), and traffic is being maintained in one, 10-foot lane with the use of temporary signals. The entire project is scheduled to be completed by late September.
