Chillicothe (Tuesday, November 1, 2016) – County Road 28 (Lucasville-Minford Road) will be closed during the overnight hours Thursday for pavement repair as part of the Southern Ohio Veterans Memorial Highway project in Scioto County.
On Thursday, November 3, crews from the Portsmouth Joint Venture (PJV) will close Lucasville-Minford between T.R. 381 (Flowers-Ison Road) and T.R. 1570 (Rase’s Mountain Drive) for culvert and pavement repair. The project area is located in the construction zone for Bridge 11 that, as part of the new highway, will cross Lucasville-Minford Road.
The closure will go into effect at 6 p.m. Thursday and continue until 6 a.m. Friday. While the route is closed, motorists will be detoured via C.R. 549 (Glendale Road), S.R. 139 and High Street in Minford to Lucasville-Minford Road.

The Southern Ohio Veterans Memorial Highway is the department’s first P3 project and the largest, modern earthwork project to be constructed in the state’s history.
