Chillicothe (Friday, March 17, 2017) – Construction projects will get under way in Highland County next month, as contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation begin work on state routes 28, 41 and 753.
On Monday, April 3, construction will begin on S.R. 753, where crews from WAI Construction will undertake a bridge replacement project at the 9.59-mile marker. The project site is located between Township Road 313A (Beaver Road) and T.R. 310 (Deer Park Road), approximately 1.5 miles north of U.S. 50 at Rainsboro, and throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in one lane with temporary signals.
WAI Construction was awarded a contract for approximately $343,564 to complete the project, and all work is anticipated to be completed by early summer.
In a separate project, operations will get under way in mid-April for an eight-mile micro-surfacing project on S.R. 28, as well as an approximately one-mile micro-surfacing on S.R. 41.
Crews from Strawser Incorporated will be paving S.R. 28 from the Leesburg corporation limit to the western corporation of Greenfield. The project will also include paving S.R. 41 from the northern corp limit of Greenfield to the Fayette County line.
Strawser, Inc. was awarded a contract for approximately $484,096 to pave both routes, and throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in one lane in each direction with the use of flaggers. Construction is scheduled to begin April 14, and the project is scheduled to be completed in early summer.
