Lawrence-93 Slip Repair Slated To Begin
Traffic Signals In Operation Later This Week
Chillicothe (Tuesday, April 17, 2012) – A slip repair project is slated to begin on state Route 93 in Lawrence County, and contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will impart lane restrictions this week.
According to Ohio Department of Transportation - District 9 Deputy Director Vaughn Wilson, crews from Shelly and Sands Incorporated will begin operations on Thursday, April 19, and reduce traffic to one, nine-foot lane at the route’s 14.00-mile marker.
The project site is situated between the route’s north and south junction with S.R. 373, north of Pedro and County Road 41 (Buckhorn Superior Road), and throughout construction, traffic will be maintained with the use of temporary traffic signals.
Shelly and Sands was awarded a contract in the amount of $382,000 to complete the project, and it is anticipated to be completed by late July or early August.
