Effort Set To Begin On Brown-125
going into effect next week
Chillicothe (Monday, June 5,
2017) – A reconstruction project is set to begin on state Route 125 in
Brown County, as contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation
mobilize crews early next week.
On Monday, June 12, crews from the John R. Jurgensen Company will start construction
on S.R. 125 for a slide repair and culvert replacement project that extends
from Township Road 402 (Gillette
Station Road) to T.R. 75 (Winfield Drive), just west of Georgetown.
The project is a
result of a severe flooding event that occurred in July 2015 in which the
roadway embankment was compromised and prompted a landslide. In addition to
remediating the slide and repairing the embankment, the project includes replacing
the existing storm water system, installing a new paved gutter, replacing a
72-inch concrete pipe culvert under S.R. 125 and installing new box culvert
under Winfield Drive.
Throughout construction on S.R.
125, traffic will be maintained in a minimum of one, 11-foot lane in each
direction, with bi-directional traffic patterns alternating during the
various phases of construction.
As part of the project, Winfield
Drive will be closed for up to 30 days. The closure will go into effect on
June 12 as well, and motorists will be detoured by way
of Gillette Station and Barnes roads.
The Jurgensen Company was
awarded a contract in the amount of $1,586,783, and while
construction on Winfield Drive is scheduled to be completed by mid-July, all
work associated with the project is scheduled to be completed in late August.
