Pike-220 Project Moving Into Final Phase
Construction Resumes; Lane Restrictions Imparted
Chillicothe (Thursday, April 12, 2012) – With construction at state Route 220 in Pike County resuming, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will impart additional traffic restrictions in the work zone and move the project into its final phase of construction.
On Monday, April 16, crews will close the intersection from the former S.R. 220 to County Road 66 (Germany Road) as part of the ongoing project in which S.R. 220 is being relocated over County Road 81 (Schuster Road) and the at-grade crossover at S.R. 32 and Germany Road is being eliminated.
With the closure of this intersection, all S.R. 220 traffic will be routed by way of the relocated section of roadway, and access to Germany Road and the former S.R. 220 (Beaver Creek Road) will be via right-in/right-out turns only.
Although major construction on S.R. 220 was completed late last summer, crews will be working in the coming weeks to eliminate the median crossover, complete final paving and install a flashing signal at the intersection of S.R. 32 and the new S.R. 220.
Throughout construction, traffic on state Route 32 will be maintained in one lane in each direction between the rerouted S.R. 220 and the intersection with Germany Road.
Shelly and Sands, Incorporated of Zanesville, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of $2.6 million to the complete the project, and all work is scheduled to be completed in late June or early July 2012.
