Project Set To Begin On Ross-772
(Thursday, May 15, 2014) – A resurfacing project is
slated to begin later this month on state Route 772 in Ross County.
Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will be
resurfacing nearly 6.5 miles of S.R. 772, beginning at the Ross-Pike County
line and continuing to County Road 167 (Blain Highway).
While construction will get under way next week to erect signs
and remove raised pavement markers, paving operations are scheduled to begin Tuesday,
May 27, and throughout the project, one lane of traffic will be maintained by flaggers
when crews are at work.
The Shelly Company, of Thornville, Ohio was
awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $824,943 to resurface the
route, and all work
is scheduled to be completed in early summer.
