ODOT Seeking Comment For Proposed Project
Chillicothe (Tuesday, January 24, 2012) – As part of the Ohio Department of Transportation – District 9’s Planning & Engineering Department, the Environmental Office is seeking public input on the following proposed project.
Brown County – BRO-32-11.40; PID: 75450 – The proposed project is a paving project from 0.06 miles east of C.R. 76 to T.R. 131 in Washington Township. The project also includes the removal of an abandoned railroad bridge at the 11.98-mile marker; removal of the bridge is due to site distance issues and the encroachment of the bridge abutments on the roadway. The project will require approximately 0.257 acres of permanent right of way, which is located on an old railroad embankment. No streams, rivers or waterways will be affected, and no homes or businesses will be removed by the project.
Issues the public may wish to comment on include the effect of the project on local residents, air quality, the local economy, and historic or cultural resources. Written comments should be submitted by February 7, 2012, or the deadline date that is posted on the web site, to:
