Resurfacing Project Set To Begin On Jackson-32
Chillicothe - Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation District 9 are preparing to start a four-lane resurfacing project on state Route 32 in Jackson County, and lane restrictions are set to go into effect next week.
“This is one of 48 preservation projects we have on tap during this year’s construction season, and while our contractors and maintenance crews are working to preserve the integrity of our routes, they are also working for the safety of the traveling public,” said ODOT District 9 Deputy Director James Brushart. “Therefore, we appreciate the patience of all motorists when crews are at work.”
On Monday, April 28, crews from Shelly and Sands Incorporated are scheduled to begin working along state Route 32, where the route will be reduced to one lane in each direction between the 0.00 and the 2.78-mile markers, from Pike County line to County Road 22 (Cove Road).
The entire project includes grinding the surface, sealing the shoulders and paving the route with an asphalt overlay. The contractors will also replace sections of guardrail and raised pavement markers where needed.
Throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in at least one, 12-foot lane in each direction, and a 50-mph speed limit will also be in effect.
Shelly and Sands, of Zanesville, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $1.85 million to resurface state Route 32, and the completion date for all work is September 30.
