Chillicothe (Thursday, September 26, 2013) – A resurfacing project is slated to begin next week on U.S. Route 50 in Ross County.
Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will be resurfacing U.S. 50 from the eastern corporation limit of Bainbridge to just east of County Road 149 (Jones Levee Road) near Bourneville.
Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, September 30, and throughout the project, one lane of traffic will be maintained by flaggers when crews are at work; motorists are advised of multiple work zones within the 6.26-mile construction zone.
The Shelly Company, of Thornville, Ohio was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $1.05 million to resurface the route, and all work is scheduled to be completed by late October.
