Chillicothe (Monday, September 10, 2012) – As part of an ongoing resurfacing project in Ross County, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will impart additional restrictions this week on U.S. Route 23.
On Wednesday, September 12, U.S. 23 will be reduced to one lane in each direction in the entire construction zone between the Scioto River Bridge at the U.S. 35 bypass split and the Three Locks Road/South Bridge Street exit. Weather permitting, operations will be in effect from approximately 6 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday, September 13.
