Lawrence-7 Beam Installation Rescheduled
Overnight Closures Set For Thursday, Friday
Chillicothe (Tuesday, February 03, 2015) – Following postponement due to weather and flooding, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation have rescheduled the project to set I-beams at the Indian Guyan Creek Bridge on state Route 7 in Lawrence County.
On Thursday and Friday, February 5 and 6, crews from Complete General Construction will close S.R. 7 during the evening and overnight hours in order to erect concrete I-beams for the new bridge. The closure will go into effect at 6 p.m. each evening and continue until 6 a.m. the following morning.
While the route is closed, motorists will be detoured via S.R. 775, S.R. 217 and S.R. 243. At all other times during construction, traffic is being maintained in one lane with the use of temporary traffic signals.
Currently, S.R. 7 is reduced to one lane at the Indian Guyan Creek bridge, west of Proctorville, where crews from Complete General Construction are replacing and widening the existing three-span continuous steel girder structure with a pre-stressed, reinforced concrete deck and substructure.
Complete General was awarded a contract for approximately $2.85 million, and the revised completion is now anticipated to be in mid-May.
